Charo Oquet is an artist, organizer, cultural producer, curator and founder of Edge Zones, Zones Art Fair and The Miami Performance Festival. Oquet’s art practice moves beyond the bounds of the studio, gallery and institution and extends into the realm of the social, where she explores systems of movement and migration, assimilation and resistance. With her work, the artist seeks to “engage with issues and contexts that affect Afro-Caribbean people both in their native countries as well as in the USA. Oquet works in a range of media: performance, installation, video, photography, paintings, sculpture and printmaking. The thread that connects her work is an engagement with social questions confronting decolonizing narratives, migration and aesthetics and a desire to push formal and conceptual boundaries while challenging stereotypes of African Americans. She has produced a wide-ranging body of work across multiple media. Oquet’s work is part of the permanent collection of The Frost Art Museum in Miami, The Bass Museum, Miami, The Museum of Ft. Lauderdale, New Zealand National Museum Wellington, N.Z.
