Scherezade García (whose work also appears on the cover of this issue), a Brooklyn-based interdisciplinary visual artist, was born in Santo Domingo, the Dominican Republic. Through her practice of drawing, painting, installation, sculpture, animated videos, and public interventions, she creates contemporary allegories of history, colonization, and politics. Her work frequently evokes memories of a faraway home and the hopes and dreams that accompany planting roots in a new land. Her work is included in the permanent collection of the Smithsonian Museum of American Art, Washington, DC; El Museo del Barrio, New York; the Housatonic Museum of Art, Bridgeport; and El Museo de Arte Moderno, Santo Domingo. She has exhibited at museums and art centers such as the Smithsonian Museum of American Art, Washington, DC; El Museo del Barrio, New York; the Newark Museum of Art; the Sugar Hill Museum; and BRIC, Brooklyn.
