The exhibit presents the artists’ personal and familial histories as a woman of The exhibit presents the artists’ personal and familial histories as a woman of Afro-Puerto Rican and Jewish descent, transforming genetic data into colorful pie charts that call to mind hard-edged abstractions. Elsewhere, she embroiders vintage doilies with her own hair to depict the human body, as well as language that references the legacy of colorism and passing in the African diaspora. In the works debuting at CAAM, she addresses early global trade, the beginnings of commodification, and economic hierarchies by taking molds of her childhood dollhouse and creating casts of it in sugar, a material whose history has dictated that of her ancestors.

Until the Museum reopens be sure to see the interview with Artist and the recent acquisitions on CAAM’s YouTube Channel.
