Opening: June 28, 2015  3 pm

Kunsthalle Münster
Hafenweg 28
48155 Münster
Germany

If a pessimist were to dismiss travel as pointless – that any journey entails consenting to the company of one’s self – then the sensually charged installations, material assemblages, drawings, photographs, and pictures of Diango Hernández sends the viewer on a journey that presents an inspired opportunity to be both simultaneously outside of one’s self and contained within it.

Maria Martinez-Cañas in group show “Portraiture Now: Staging the Self”, at The National Portrait Gallery, Washington, DC..

Aug. 22, 2014  through April 12, 2015

The National Portrait Gallery
Eighth and F Streets NW,
Washington, D.C. 20001

 
“Portraiture Now: Staging the Self” features the work of David Antonio Cruz, Carlee Fernandez, María Martínez-Cañas, Rachelle Mozman, Karen Miranda Rivadaneira, and Michael Vasquez, all artists of Latino background, who make us aware of how identities are constructed and negotiated via portraiture. Seeking to relieve portraiture of its charge to memorialize individuals and convey essential aspects of their identities, they use it instead to explore the ambiguities and changes in individual character. Theatricality is central to their inquiry, as they represent narratives remembered or imagined from their own family histories, or superimpose portraits of their loved ones over themselves, looking for what is shared or unique in individuality, searching like an actor for a character. As they present themselves in a staged manner, portraiture loses its aura of certainty, and becomes an evolving map for finding oneself and others.

Impact and Legacy: 50 Years of the CINTAS Foundation, at MDC Museum of Art + Design, Miami

April 25 – July 12, 2014

MDC Museum of Art + Design

600 Biscayne Blvd. – Miami, FL

The legacy of Oscar B. Cintas has fostered the development of Cuban artists outside of Cuba for the last 50 years, promoting the professional development of these artists and the continuity of Cuban traditions in art. The foresight Cintas has resulted in more than 300 fellowships and grants awarded to creative writers, architects, composers, visual artists and filmmakers, many of whom have later achieved national and international renown. The roster of Cintas fellows is a testament to the talent and creativity of the Cubans and their direct descendants who have lived outside the island since 1959. The Cintas Foundation is the oldest entity in the United States dedicated to the support of artists of the Cuban diaspora.

Cuban Art and Identity: 1900 to 1950 at the Vero Beach Museum of Art, FL

October 19, 2013 – February 2, 2014

Vero Beach Museum of Art

3001 Riverside Park Drive,
Vero Beach, Florida 32963

Cuban Art and Identity: 1900 to 1950 will feature exciting, colorful works of twentieth-century paintings by artists who defined the island nation’s cultural identity. Cuba’s “modernist” painters participated in a global movement in the arts, characterized by a self-conscious break with traditional art styles. These lively works of art will show how artists searched for a sense of national identity by exploring three main themes: Criollismo (rural, folkloric, and peasant subjects), Afro-Cubanism (Cuba’s African heritage), and Barroquismo (Spanish foundational culture). Some of the artists representing these trends will include Mario Carreño, Cundo Bermudez, René Portocarrero, and Mariano Rodriguez.
