Elio Rodríguez: Puzzled, at 532 Gallery Thomas Jaeckel, NYC

April 1 – May 9, 2016

Reception: March 31st, 6-8pm

532 Gallery Thomas Jaeckel
532 West 25th Street
New York, NY 10001
 

Join us next week at 532 Gallery Thomas Jaeckel for the opening reception of Puzzled, Elio Rodriguez’ first solo exhibition in New York City.  The show is on view until May 9th and will coincide with his exhibition On Guard at Harvard University’s Hutchins Center for Afro-Latin Studies and at our gallery’s booth at Context Art New York at Pier 94, May 4-8, 2016.

On view in Chelsea will be the artist’s large scale soft sculptures and the photography based collage works at Hutchins Center, Cambridge.

Elio experiments with the construction of the intimacy of interior and exterior spaces, all things carnal and decorative, functional and artistic, manufactured and native.  His soft sculptures reimagine familiar forms using, in abundant measure, plant and carnal shapes, juxtaposed against sundry objects, metal screws, lace corsets, chains, belts, wire, filament, pins — with results that are pictorial equivalents of familiar concepts and concerns.

ALEJANDRO AGUILERA: SERIOUSLY FUNNY, Political Cartoons and Illustrations, at Swan Coach House Gallery, Atlanta, GA

February 25 (opening) – April 8, 2016

Curated by Marianne Lambert

Swan Coach House Gallery
3130 Slaton Drive N.W.
Atlanta, GA 30305

The Swan Coach House Gallery and the Forward Arts Foundation are pleased to present the work of internationally-known artist, Alejandro Aguilera. The works featured in this exhibition are social and political cartoons and illustrations that he has executed daily since leaving his homeland of Cuba. This is the first time the work has been presented to the public.

The pieces selected for this exhibition are divided into themes describing American life, portraits of artists and spiritual world leaders, satirical cartoons of political leaders, and a series of abstract drawings. Humor has long been a part of the culture and character of the Cuban people and is used as a form of coping with their oppression. These images are amusing and reflective rather than mocking or ironical. They function as tools of communication more in favor of understanding rather than confrontation. Unlike the spoken or written word, drawings are universally readable and for Aguilera function as a means to keep the world informed of the communist regime dominating his people. He sends them to peers all over the world and to his family still in Cuba.

JUAN-SI GONZALEZ, ALTERATIONS: MENTAL MODEL SERIES, 2009/2015, at Art@Work Gallery, Miami

November 28, 2015 – January 16, 2016

Opening reception: Saturday, Nov. 28  7pm- 10pm

Art@Work Gallery
1245 SW 87 Ave.
Miami, FL 33174
 

The photographs in this series register sudden glitches or gaps in transmission in the unrelenting traffic of media images. They are of television advertisements during those intervals in which the signal is interrupted and the emitted image breaks up, fragmenting until nearly disintegrating. What remains is a trail of digital data, a wake of drifting fragments and vestiges of images that retain some trace of that which has already precipitously disappeared. In these photographs, I try to capture and document the digital trail left behind by an image in movement, its ephemeral trajectory from the recognizable to the abstract. From the visual detritus emerge new signifiers that evoke other subjectivities, other discourses, and other more static and contemplative temporalities. On being severed and extracted from their referents, the images are deactivated and emptied of their content and original purpose. In their estrangement, they engender new forms, a new visual syntax created with the intention of disrupting the intended order of representation and mechanisms of persuasion.

GORY: Notes for a Retrospective, at Aluna Art Foundation, Miami

From November 21, 2015 to January 16, 2016

Opening Reception: November 21, 7:00pm

Curated by Aluna Curatorial Collective (Adriana Herrera y Willy Castellanos)

Aluna Art Foundation
1393 S.W. 1st. Street
Miami Fl. 33135

The notion that Art History is a theoretical and iconographic narrative where its construction – and deconstruction – can and should pass, given by the tension amongst the diverse modes of hegemony that captures its account, was vital for the conception of the exhibition by “Rogelio López Marín, “Gory”: Notes for a Retrospective”. As such, Aluna Curatorial Collective (Adriana Herrera y Willy Castellanos) makes a merited lengthy homage, to one of the pioneers of contemporary art in Cuba, owner of a vision that is as much personal as irreducible, and whose decisive contribution to art and photography – in the island and in the continent -, deserves to be re-dimensioned.

Rafael Lopez-Ramos: CHROMATIC APORIAS, at MOCA Proyect Gallery, North Miami

September, 19 2015   7-9pm

Museum of Contemporary Art
North Miami
Joan Lehman Building
770 NE 125th Street
North Miami, Florida 33161

 

In Chromatic Aporias the artist includes realistic renderings of tropical fruits paraphrasing the gaze of colonial Art; the syncretism of Afro-Cuban religious symbols and Catholic images; and the Revolution’s propaganda iconography. Now he adds typical Americana popular culture characters, and esoteric symbols related to the American political tradition. The carnivalesque mixture of such dissimilar narratives may connote the cultural, philosophical and political paradoxes faced by the Cuban soul today, in a contemporary reenactment of the Aristotelian concept of Aporia: the equality of contrary conclusions.

Gustavo Acosta: “Timeline”, at Latin American Masters Art Gallery, Santa Monica, CA

September 12 – October 31, 2015

Reception for the Artist: Saturday, September 12, 2015, 6 – 8 PM

Latin American Masters Art Gallery
2525 Michigan Ave E2,
Santa Monica, CA 90404

Latin American Masters is pleased to present, Timeline, an exhibition of recent paintings by Gustavo Acosta (Cuba, b. 1958). Acosta’s Timeline paintings feature the neo-romantic architecture of a seemingly abandoned city. Acosta’s treatment of surface, particularly the staining and layering of color, reinforce an awareness of time’s imprint. Yet, his paintings have an enigmatic, A-temporal quality, as if haunted by history. Rather than ghost towns, they appear as constructions from a parallel world that can never be entered, where threedimensional space flows seamlessly into two-dimensional geometry.
