Redecode x Containers
Inkjet on vinyl
2021

 

Redecode x Containers by Joiri Minaya, a New York-based Black Latinx artist, presents portraits from her Containers series (2015–2020) and landscape images from her Redecode wallpaper series. Containers is an ongoing project highlighting female subjects in seemingly natural environments wearing bodysuits Minaya makes using fabric with tropical designs. By abstracting tropical images via pixelation in Redecode, Minaya introduces an unexpected and layered take on cultural tropes historically projected onto Caribbean culture, women, and the region’s natural and commercialized elements. Combining these two series in one pictorial plane, Minaya provides space for the viewer to question imposed histories and ideas, encouraging new and culturally inclusive narratives.

Redecode x Containers is curated by BAM’s Curator-At-Large, Larry Ossei-Mensah.


All events will adhere to protocols developed in accordance with New York State regulations and in consultation with medical professionals for the safety of our artists, audiences, and staff. Please visit BAM’s safety protocol page for the most up-to-date information.
