Atrium Project: Joiri Minaya

Friday, August 21, 2020 to Sunday, July 18, 2021
Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art

Kemper Museum’s fifth annual Atrium Project is a commissioned, site-specific installation by Dominican-American, New York-based artist Joiri Minaya (born 1990). Best known for her work, #dominicanwomengooglesearch (2016), Minaya used imagery that resulted in the Google search “Dominican women” to negotiate how female bodies are exoticized. This installation continues Minaya’s multi-disciplinary work, which investigates the female body, fabric patterns, and digital imagery in context with themes addressing colonialism, constructed identities, and hierarchies within multicultural social spaces.
