SCHEREZADE GARCIA:  The Caribbean Iconography Trifecta

Congratulations to Scherezade Garcia for her remarkable achievements during the course of this year, as the prolific Dominican artist’s works are simultaneously exhibited in three prestigious institutions this fall.

In her solo show “It’s So Sunny That It’s Dark”, at the Clifford Art Gallery in Colgate College, N.Y., García touches themes such as displacement, adaptation and the iconography of the caribbean diaspora through chromatic mastery and atmospheric seduction.

She is also part of the 48 Latin American artists chosen take part in the collective show How to Read El Pato Pascual: Disney’s Latin America and Latin America’s Disney, a Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA exhibition of over 150 works which investigate and challenge nearly one hundred years of cultural influence between Latin America and Disney.

Furthermore, Scherezade is also part of Relational Undercurrents: Contemporary Art of the Caribbean Archipelago at the Museum of Latin American Art in Los Angeles -MoLAA , a major survey exhibition of twenty-first century Caribbean art that employs the archipelago as an analytical framework; García’s work featured in the thematic section of Conceptual Mappings, as someone whose works have informed and shaped those themes.
