Firelei Báez’s paintings and installations explore the histories of Afro-Latina and Afro-Caribbean women who have largely been forgotten by the West. In her site-specific installation For Améthyste and Athénaïre (Exiled Muses Beyond Jean Luc Nancy’s Canon), Anacaonas, Báez focuses on Haitian history with portraits of Améthyste and Athénaïre Christophe, daughters of the first king and queen of Haiti, which gained independence from France in 1804.
