Bio Last Updated


Amy Hussein (1989) is a Dominican-Lebanese visual artist whose work focuses on the resignification, recodification and juxtaposition of images of contemporary culture. Hussein configures a personal imaginary, which deals with the complexities of the diaspora and the reimagining of its context. She attended the Altos de Chavón School of Design (2014), the Intensive Studies Program at Parsons The New School (2013) and participated in Curando Caribe (2016), a curatorial training program organized by Centro León and the CCE in Santo Domingo.

In 2014 she founded Casa Quién, a space for the production of contemporary thought dedicated to the development of artistic practices based in the Caribbean and Latin America. She currently directs the project together with Elisa Bergel Melo, Raquel Paiewonsky and Maurice Sánchez. 

Hussein’s work is in the collections of the 21c Museum Hotels and the Centro de la Imagen as well as several private collections. Selected features of her work include Hyperallergic, WePresent by Wetransfer, Artishock and Forbes Dominicana.

Hussein lives and works in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic.
