Bloodlines is an exhibition by that traces the history of social movements in the Unites States and the Caribbean, inspired by lineages of black resistance. Best known for her large-scale works on paper, Báez makes connections of diasporic experiences by interweaving the lives of 18th century black women in Louisiana and the Cuban roots of the Latin American azabache, with symbols used in the U.S. during the 1960s. The exhibition showcases paintings and drawings specifically depicting textiles, hair designs, and body ornaments.

Firelei Báez, born in Dominican Republic, lives and works in New York. Her work shows a convergence of interest in anthropology, science fiction, black female subjectivity and women’s work.
