Queens Museum of Art 
Flushing Meadows Corona Park
New York Ave
Queens, NY 11368
 
Citizens of the World: Cuba in Queens” explores how Cuban visual artists, living both on island and in diaspora, grapple with the profound complexities between identity and place. Simultaneously a collective sentiment and a uniquely individual notion, lo cubano extends beyond geographic and existential boundaries. Exploring personal motivations and experiences, this exhibition presents varied expressions of spirituality, humor, isolation, and discovery surrounding the immigrant experience and the intangible connections between where one lives and one’s sense of self.

Alejandro Aguilera embraces the Modern Spirit at the High

by Felicia Feaster

Creative Loafing Atlanta

Cuban-born, Atlanta-based artist offers an effusive to creativity

It’s hard not to rejoice when a longtime Atlanta artist achieves Big Kahuna status with a show at the High Museum. Local artist Radcliffe Bailey scored big in 2011 with his retrospective Memory as Medicine at the museum and is probably still fist-pumping the air after scaling that career hurdle. Now the Cuban-born, Atlanta-based artist Alejandro Aguilera has garnered his own real estate in a more intimate, but still impressive show. About the Modern Spirit is an effusive, life-affirming group hug to human creativity that proves a nice juxtaposition with the neighboring show’s cuckoo-for-color graf-anime of the Brooklyn-based artist Brian Donnelly, aka KAWS.

Alejandro Aguilera blends Afro-Cuban heritage, modernism at Saltworks

by Rebecca Dimling Cochran | Apr 15, 2011
ArtsCriticATL.COM

Alejandro Aguilera’s current solo show at Saltworks takes us back to a series of works he made in 1998, called the “Black Drawings.” It’s a rewarding journey: the drawings are rich and raw, pulsating with alternating rhythms that give them a lyrical quality.

The Cuban-born artist made them when he first immigrated to the United States and was living in Miami. At the time, his day job was designing and creating hand-painted fabrics for commercial use in wall coverings and upholstery. At night, Aguilera would take large sheets of the thin kraft paper that bound the rolls of fabric back to the studio with him.
