June 18 – August 24, 2014

The Patricia & Phillip Frost Art Museum
10975 SW 17th Street
Miami, FL, 33199

School of Night features works on paper by artist Arturo Rodríguez. The drawings are inspired by the personal experience of the artist, who feels that between mid-night and dawn his surroundings acquire different dimensions. The School of Night project is actually a collaboration with nine poets whose verses are based in his drawings and together form a book, which will be launched with the exhibition. Curated by Juan A. Martínez.

Cuban Americans – Our America: The Latino Presence In American Art – Smithsonian Museum

October 25, 2013 – March 2, 2013

 

American Art Museum
8th And F Street NW
Washington DC
 

An exhibition opening next month at the Smithsonian American Art Museum, “Our America: The Latino Presence in American Art,” will highlight a chapter of art history that remains a secret to far too many Americans.

Since joining the Smithsonian in 2010, E. Carmen Ramos, the curator of Latino art at the American Art Museum, has had an ambitious mandate: to strengthen our holdings of Latino art and present that collection in a fresh way. “Our America,” which she curated, will display the results of that quest so far. It will include 92 works (by 72 artists), fully 63 of which have been acquired since 2011.

This exhibit is well represented by Cuban American Artists including Luis Cruz Azaceta, Maria Brito, Maria Magdalena Campos-Pons, Teresita Fernandez, Ana Mendieta, Abelardo Morell, Maria Martinez-Cañas, Arturo Rodriguez, Emilio Sanchez, and Rafael Soriano.

Arturo Rodriguez -Passengers

April 27 – June 6, 2012

Waltman Ortega Fine Art
2238 NW 1st Place
Miami, FL

Opening – April 27, 6- 9 PM

Waltman Ortega Fine Art is pleased to present “Passengers” a recent series of paintings by the celebrated Cuban-american artist. Featuring paintings ranging in size from intimate to monumental, these works provide a hypnotic meditation on the human condition and the passage of time.

“Airports, train stations, bus stops, parking lots … all are a source of fascination and anxiety for me,” notes Rodriguez.  “With their constant, yet anonymous flow of traffic, these places embody some of the most impermanent and poignant paradoxes in life. I have composed each picture as both an interior and exterior landscape, in which space becomes a metaphor for loneliness.”

Arturo Rodriguez, Julio Larraz in show LATIN AMERICAN ART FROM THE MUSEUM’S COLLECTION at Boca Raton Museum of Art, FL

Through August 28, 2011

Boca Raton Museum of Art

501 Plaza Real,
Boca Raton, FL 33432
In Mizner Park

Twentieth-century and contemporary Latin American art is international in nature, and its leading figures have achieved international stature. This sampling of Latin American art from the Museum’s collections introduces the work of several major Latin American artists whose works reflect the interaction of politics, society and art, a dialogue between avant-garde movements and “indigenist” thinking, and the search for cultural -identity.

Twenty works by many of the most important 20th century Latin American artists range from the traditional figurative sculpture of Francisco Zúñiga, to the the modernism of Rufino Tamayo and Matta, the contemporary abstraction of Enrique Castro-Cid and Carlos Cruz-Diez, and the poetic realism of Julio Larraz.
