Featuring original commissioned artwork by the critically acclaimed Caribbean artist, Quisqueya Henríquez, two limited-edition cigar boxes were manufactured in a quantity of 3,000 each, and stocked with custom-made cigars developed exclusively for the Limited Art Edition.
In addition, the artist was invited to create a limited run of fifty Collector’s Edition box sets, which include the special edition of box cigars, as well as an original artist’s print from the series of images developed for the project.
In addition, several new works by Quisqueya Henríquez will be on view in the Davidoff Collectors Lounge at Art Basel Miami Beach from December 4-7, 2014. The artist presents an intervention in space that includes the design of the walls as an inseparable part of the artwork on view.
Quisqueya explores stereotypes related to race, gender and cultural conventions. Humor, parody, deconstruction and appropriation are some of the approaches that she has used to explore different media including collage, video, photography, installation and sound.
Curator Amy Rosenblum-Martin said, “Although Quisqueya has been described as neo-Dada, her true passion lies in how a process or activity can turn into art and as public participation gives meaning to that work, making the cliché one new paradigm.”
