QUEENIE features a selection of artworks by female artists across various media from the permanent collection of El Museo del Barrio. The exhibition highlights the institution's collection with a particular focus on the female artists and QUEENIE takes its title from a sculpture by Alessandra Expósito. The exhibition brings together works which prompt a multifarious dialogue around society and gender through the artists' varying perspectives and experiences. As part of the exhibition, HEHG has invited four NYC-based artists to respond to the exhibition with a new commission that further explores the connections among the collecting process, societal change, and a gendered experience.
