August 23, 2014 2:00PM – 4:00PM

Nova Southeastern University’s Museum of Art | Fort Lauderdale
One East Las Olas Blvd.
Fort Lauderdale, FL 33301

Panel Discussion on Cuban Art with Ramon Cernuda and Margarita Cano, moderated by Bonnie Clearwater, Director and Chief Curator, NSU Museum of Art Fort Lauderdale

Ramón Cernuda is a publisher, editor, writer, collector and internationally recognized expert on Cuban Art. After 30 years pursuing a lifelong love of Cuban art as a private art collector and researcher, he established Cernuda Arte gallery in 2000. He has been the publisher of La Gran Enciclopedia Martiana and a founding member of the Enciclopedia de Cuba Publishing Group. He was a member of the board of directors of the Cuban Museum of Arts and Culture and served as Vice President from 1987-1990.

Born in Havana, Cuba, artist and arts organizer Margarita Cano arrived in the United States in 1962. She worked at the Miami-Dade Public Library as a Community Relations and Art Services Coordinator. In 1983, she organized the landmark exhibition, The Miami Generation: Nine Cuban American Artists (curated by Giulio Blanc) for Miami’s Cuban Museum of Arts and Culture. In 1993, Cano began painting full-time and creating one-of-a-kind artist books. Her work is reminiscent of the illuminated manuscripts of the High Middle Ages, and her idealized landscapes of her beloved island serve as settings for the interaction of the sacred and the mundane.

“SINCE THE WHORES HAD GONE: URBAN SPACE, EROTICISM, DOCUMENT, AND POLITICS”.
A conversation on Cuban Photography of the 90’s by art critic and curator Juan Antonio Molina (in Spanish)

“SINCE THE WHORES HAD GONE” is the title of the book in process that brings together newspaper articles, essays, and chronicles, written during the last 20 years by Juan Antonio Molina on contemporary Cuban Photography. The book will also include subjects as the representations of urban space, the relationship between photography and poetry, body, fiction, staging, and the different alternatives of what the author called “New Documentary in Cuba”. Parallel to these reflections, the essay opens a space on identity and rootlessness, aesthetic utopia and political disenchantment, as well as memory and the recent national history.

The Cuban American Phototheque of Miami Presents Ivan Canas’ Artist Talk, Miami

Saturday, February 15 at 7 p.m

 

The Cuban American Phototheque
4260 SW 74 Ave
the Bird Road Art District 
Miami, Florida 33155

The Cuban born photographer Ivan Cañas began his professional career in the 60s, but the protagonists of his personal work were never the leaders of the so called Cuban Revolution that produced thousands of images published all around the world. Although the photographer took with expertise the images requested by the editors of the magazine he worked on, the creator kept always some film to satisfy his personal vision of the everyday life in Cuba.

The Cuban American Phototheque will hold an Artist Talk next Saturday, February 15 at 7 p.m., the occasion of the current exhibition Ivan Canas: A Retrospective. Cuban Art specialist Ileana Fuentes and Willy Castellanos will be talking with artist Ivan Cañas providing diverse viewpoints about the photographer’s work and his role in the Cuban Art made in and outside the island. The photographer will be available to answer the public questions and share his memories with the audience.

Lectures by Alejandro Anreus

CANY is proud to announce 2 lectures by Alejandro Anreus.

September 26, 2013  7 PM

Mario Carreño: The Early Years. Mario Carreño (1913 -1999) is one of the key artists of the second avant-garde generation in Cuban art. This lecture focuses on his early work from the late 1930s until 1943.

 September 27, 2013    7 PM

Antonia Eiriz In Context. Neo-figurative painter Antonia Eiriz (1929 -1995) is one of the most significant artists of her generation. Eiriz’s artwork is powerful and somber. Imbued with an audacious expression of angst, human suffering and social criticism, her imagery often connects to other great figures of the art world such as, Goya, Francis Bacon and Edward Munch. This lecture will present the main themes of her paintings in the socio-political context of her time, and relate it to her contemporaries in Latin America.
