Born in Kingston, Jamaica, Weinberger’s work relates to her Caribbean-American background and draws strongly on the complexity of heritage and assumed norms as she goes about defining the female archetype. Referencing herself among a sea of antiquated stereotypes, adolescent memory and current subjects as a source, Weinberger renders her female muses as excessive, sexualized, some passive and others dominant that question notions of beauty. Solo shows include: What Makes My Hottentot so Hot at the Solo(s) Project House, Newark, (2012); Sometimes All of Me is Not Enough at Carol Jazzar Contemporary, Miami, (2012); Potbelly Pin-Ups: Out Of Many One, Woman Made Gallery, Chicago, (2014).

Current 2016 and upcoming exhibitions include: Carried Weight, The Delaware Center of Contemporary Art, Wilmington, MD; Jamaican Pulse, Royal West of England Academy, Bristol, UK; Modern Heroics, The Newark Museum, Newark, NJ. Weinberger was included in the 2013 Martinique Biennale; four-time participant in the Jamaica Biennial, National Gallery of Jamaica, from 2006 and last in 2014.
