Firelei Báez: An Open Horizon (or) the Stillness of a Wound

Born in the Dominican Republic and working in New York City, artist Firelei Báez’s paintings of dramatically shapeshifting figures assert the power of the female form, challenging fundamental ideas around beauty and Caribbean history. Produced by the Peabody Award-winning nonprofit organisation Art21, the film features original dance choreography and follows the prolific Firelei as she creates new paintings in her Bronx studio and travels through the surrounding neighborhood.
