Ernesto Pujol’s “Social Choreography” in Lower Manhattan

Pujol was born in Cuba and raised there and in Puerto Rico. As a site-specific public performance artist, his work explores concepts of collective identity, spirituality, and the notion of the artist as a citizen and cultural worker. “I believe that everyone has the right to culture,” he has stated. “And I mean critical culture rather than entertainment. Critical culture is a human right.” His performance practice is based on walking—“durational group performances as public art,” as he states in his website, creating “psychic restorative portraits of peoples and places across the U.S.” Most recently, Pujol choreographed a work presented this past summer at the Istanbul Modern Art Museum, in collaboration with Jeffrey Baykal-Rollins and the Silsila Collective.

Time After Us was presented as part of “Crossing the Line,” an annual festival of interdisciplinary and performance art presented in New York by the French Institute Alliance Française. It took place in Saint Paul’s Chapel, one of the oldest churches in New York, which opened for Episcopal services in 1776.

Mario Algaze – Throckmorton Fine Art

July 11 – September 14, 2013


Throckmorton Fine Art
145 E 57th Street
New York, NY

Throckmorton Fine Art is pleased to present a photography exhibit of portraits of famous men and women. Portraiture has a lengthy, rich, and diverse history in art. In our era, portraits of the famous have a pleasant association: they are familiar and frequently serve as cultural and temporal markers. These portraits, though, can be enigmatic, showing recognized faces but only hinting at complex personalities and the quixotic flow of fortune and tragedy.

Pavel Acosta: Stolen Paint

June 12, 2013 – January 4, 2014

El Museo del Barrio
1230 5th Ave
New York, NY 10029

Going beyond the legal boundaries, and stealing the state property is an expanded exercise in Cuba. It has even become morally acceptable action — a payback for earning very low salaries, which are not enough to cover the basic needs of a regular worker, in a centralized economy. My recent work was born out of trying to translate this survival strategy into my creative process. Some of my photography series document illicit private businesses the government sees as a form of robbery, like owning a gymnasium for bodybuilding (Stolen Talent, 2009), creating new car designs, by merging old automobiles with modern pieces (Stolen Talent, 2009-2010), or privately using abandoned public spaces (Stolen Spaces, 2006-2009). Another body of work is developed using collage on different media. Stolen Paintings (2008-present) is a series of collage on canvas and paper, which I also started in Havana. There, I used layers of dry paint, which I collected from walls, and found objects in the city. After coming to live in New York, I turned this process into a working technique that is subordinated to specific ideas. Most of the time, the layers of acrylic are prepared in my studio, on top of a glass, to later use it for “dry painting.” In the case of Wallscape, an intervention in El Museo’s collection display, I will reproduce the painting hung in the wall in front of mine —Goat Song # 5: Tumult on George Washington Avenue, 1988, by Manuel Macarulla. I will collect the layers of old paint in my wall, and use this material to reproduce it at a 1:1 scale, as if my wall was reflecting it.

The Wrinkles of the City, Havana, Cuba

May 7 – July 12, 2013

Bryce Wolkowitz Gallery
505 W24th Street
New York, NY 10011

The Wrinkles of the City was started by JR in Cartagena, Spain and has been reprised in Shanghai, Los Angeles, and most recently, Havana. In 2012, JR and Parlá photographed and interviewed dozens of senior citizens who lived through the Cuban revolution, flyposting colossal black-and-white portraits of their subjects on the walls of city buildings. Parlá, who is of Cuban descent, interlaces the images with palimpsestic, calligraphic writings and color. In a city devoid of commercial imagery, JR and Parlá’s enormous yet intimate portraits offer a stunningly humane contrast to the endless repetition of political icons.

Abelardo Morrell exhibits in NY

October 4 – December 22, 2012

Bonni Benrubi
41 East 57th Street
New York, NY

Bonni Benrubi Gallery is pleased to present Rock Paper Scissors, new work by Abelardo Morell. The exhibition will further expand on Morell’s innovative “Tent-Camera Obscura” process where visual boundaries are pushed with the use of a lightproof tent and periscope that projects a view of the nearby landscape directly onto the ground. The resulting photographs play on the tropes of impressionistic painting as the refracted light is exposed on the grass and sand below. The artist began using this process in 2010 and in recent months, since receiving a grant from National Geographic, has incorporated the Grand Canyon and other rocky terrains from the American West into this body of work.

Teresita Fernandez

September 12 – October 20, 2012

Lehmann Maupin Gallery
201 Chrystie Street
New York, NY

In her fifth solo exhibition at Lehmann Maupin Gallery, Teresita Fernández creates works that evoke the dramatic and universal experience of looking at the night sky. The exhibition consists of a single, large-scale installation built on site in the soaring double-height space of the Chrystie Street gallery. Made up of thousands of translucent, colored layers of polycarbonate, the hovering form becomes like sculptural painting, filtering the natural light in the space to create a color field reminiscent of the aurora borealis.

Armando Mariño The Waste Land

October 11 – November 5, 2012

532 Gallery
532 West 25th Street
New York, NY

This solo show features new oil on canvas paintings and works on paper. The title of the show refers immediately to the T.S Eliot poem, but the paintings that Marino shows are far from an illustration of it. In these paintings the artist recognizes the poem as a background to his work. “It helped me put together all the paintings,” he said. “The style of the poem overall is marked by hundreds of allusions and quotations from other texts, like my paintings.”

Masters of the Imagination: The Latin American Fine Art Exhibition

September 15 – October 5, 2012

Reception: Thursday September 20, 2012 6-8 PM

Artist Octavio Guinart
Agora Gallery
530 West 25th Street,
New York, NY

…Symbols abound along a horizon of geographical optic fusion – nostalgic palms, ancient totems, bucolic cattle, political ephemera and money in cash – all images ripe for the imagination of Cuban-born and educated artist Guinart. Influenced heavily by the work of distinguished Madrilenian philosopher Jose Ortega y Gasset, these paintings frame the doublespeak of the socio-politically exiled within a pleasing pastiche of classic and contemporary figuration.

Caridad Sola / Our Lady of Apparitions, in NY

The Cuban-American visual-performance artist and architect Caridad Sola produces work with one intention – to create unforgettable experiences. She exposes viewers to powerful rituals and provocative metaphors with her passion for the grandiose, the dramatic, and the theatrical.

The performance Our Lady of Apparitions explores the belief in the unbelievable through anomalous, quasi-perceptual experience of apparitions. The artist will perform her own appearance of each Catholic saint she was named after (La Virgin de la Caridad, La Virgin de la Mercedes, and Santa Barbara.) Each day she will begin to appear from the Western point of 14 Street and travel across to its most Eastern point.

October 6-12, beginning two hours before sunset
The performance will begin at the west end of 14th street and end at the east end of the street.

Lopez-Ramos – WoNdErLAND

July 7, 2012 to August 25, 2012

Opening July 7 –  7 to 11 PM

17 Frost Art Space
17 Frost Street
Brooklyn, NY 11211

This event features the recent works of artist Rafael Lopez-Ramos and a musical presentation by Lenna Pierce at 8:00 pm, and Roberto Poveda at 9:00 pm.  All this is part of the symposium Havana, Miami, Brooklyn: A Convergence of Art and Music.

Lopez Ramos artworks are usually structured on multiple visual and semantic layers of contrasting iconographies from which a concept emerges. For his Wonderland series, Lopez Ramos has resorted to found objects, mostly containers/labels of consumer goods, and pornographic images, all of which morphs into a sort of palimpsest when superimposed on abstract expressionist backgrounds.
