Deborah Cullen, director and chief curator
Scherezade Garcia creates contemporary allegories of history, politics, and colonization, which take shape in vivid colors and energetic, dream-like combinations. Born in the Dominican Republic, Scherezade’s work takes a wide breadth of forms—from drawings and paintings to art installations using life jackets, inner tubes, and mattresses. “The form of things, the harmony, the composition and the beauty of things are very important to me,” she said. “But the systems behind it, the meaning, the complexity of my voice has to be there.” Scherezade’s site-specific work in the Miller Lobby will be the third piece created for the space, produced in collaboration with the Wallach Art Gallery on campus.
