A significant body of work conceived and produced at different intervals of the artist’s life will be on display; while they vary in medium and technique, these pieces share traces of the powerful repertoire with which the artist constructs his system of ideas and images.

The exhibition reveals shared interests in architecture and space, as well as pattern and color, demonstrating geometric abstraction’s long history in Cuba. Zilia Sánchez will be present for the opening reception on Thursday, May 5 from 6-8pm.

Jorge Rodríguez Gerada: How One Artist Has Changed the Face of Barcelona

From Crane.tv

Urban painter, sculptor and creator of monumental land art, Jorge Rodríguez-Gerada is an artist working against the divisive forces that are pulling contemporary society apart.  His most recent mural in Barcelona, called “Panorama”, is a composite portrait that combines features from 10 women in the city’s Sant Martí neighbourhood. The result, an “everywoman”, represents and celebrates the contributions of women to community life.

 

The huge mural – painted on a wall 33 feet across and more than 90 feet high – was part of the Open Walls Conference 2015 and is one of his Identity Series, which he started in 2002 when he moved to Barcelona from New York City. The artist started painting murals of anonymous locals not only to question the controls imposed in public space, but to comment on consumer messages by using the the same strategic positioning and size of a billboard to create a counter commentary.

Freedom and Ambiguity: An Interview with Julio Larraz

From Art Fuse

By Graham McLean

With an ease and precision that comes only from a lifelong dedication to one’s craft, it is no wonder why so many consider Cuban born artist Julio Larraz to be one of the most important Latin American artists working today. Larraz creates monumental works of art that are majestic and refined, but still somehow accessible. His works, though painted naturalistically, are often highly imaginative, and this duality is what draws the viewer in.

Larraz has had an impressive career dating back to the 1960s when he drew political caricatures for the New York Times, The Washington Post, The Chicago Tribune, Vogue Magazine, and other publications. He is the recipient of an award from the American Academy of Arts and Letters and his work can be found in museums, galleries, and private collections all across the globe. I had the great honor of speaking with Larraz about his work and what he thinks his art means.

School of Visual Arts
335 West 16th St Fl 1,  New York
 

MFA Art Practice presents site-specific performance artist, social choreographer and faculty member Ernesto Pujol discussing his practice. Pujol is known for his silent, durational, walking performances as portraits of people and places within familiar landscapes and architecture that have nevertheless become invisible. His performances have often served as mausoleums or monuments to forgotten or remembered but unresolved social issues, which have been mourned or reflected upon during the experience. He is the author of Sited Body, Public Visions: Silence, Stillness and Walking as Performance Practice and numerous anthologized essays.

ICA Speaks: Jorge Pardo will take place at Palm Court in partnership with the Miami Design District.

The Institute of Contemporary Art presents ICA Speaks, a series of lectures highlighting artists from the museum’s permanent collection. ICA Miami welcomes Jorge Pardo, a sculptor whose body of work reflects the complex relationships between architecture, sculpture, design, painting, and drawing.

Jorge Pardo (b. 1963, Havana, Cuba) frequently blurs the lines that separate disciplines, presenting a fundamental challenge to the relationship between artwork and viewer. Characterized by this dynamic interaction, Pardo’s oeuvre invites audience expectations to define the way which each work is perceived and interpreted

GLADYS TRIANA’S ‘REFLECTIONS OF SHADOWS’ at Cervantes Institute, NY

Opening and Reception: Thursday, March 3, 2016 @ 7 pm

March 3 – 18, 2016

The opening reception will feature a special commentary by the distinguished curator and art historian Ricardo Viera

Instituto Cervantes Gallery
211 E 49th St, NYC

A unique exhibit by internationally acclaimed and multi-faceted Cuban artist Gladys Triana, who during her long career has excelled in painting, sculpture, etching, and photography. This solo exhibit, Reflections of Shadows, includes a video trilogy, as well as a selection of four of her photography series since 2008.

Throughout her artistic trajectory, Triana has continuously renewed and reinvented her language, particularly through photography, as a means of expression and reflection on the human condition. In her photography, the artist transforms small objects from daily life into irreconcilable sculptured shapes, creating an iconography that speaks eloquently about our fragile surroundings in our journey through this world.

Co-organized by Instituto Cervantes and Cuban Cultural Center

Presented with the support of Cuba Art NY

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.

Alchemy of the Soul: Maria Magdalena Campos-Pons, at Peabody Essex Museum, Salem

January 9 – April 3, 2016

The Peabody Essex Museum,
East India Square (161 Essex St)
Salem, Massachusetts 01970


Alchemy of the Soul: Maria Magdalena Campos-Pons
presents the most ambitious collaboration between the Afro-Cuban artist and her husband, musician and composer Neil Leonard. Through large-scale blown glass sculptures, paintings, photographs, and evocative soundscapes, the artist draws on the structural forms found in the abandoned sugar mills and rum factories of her childhood island home. Incorporating the sweet smell of rum, this multi-sensory exhibition creates an intoxicating reconceptualization of the often-brutal history of the Cuban sugar industry, offering a visceral experience that ignites the senses and our emotional awareness of place, memory, identity and labor.

Pérez Art Museum Miami 
1103 Biscayne Blvd.,  
Miami, FL 33132 
 

Carlos Alfonzo’s prolific works in clay and painted ceramics are inextricably connected to the formal evolution of his large paintings and sculptures. In a productive decade, he painted myriad molded ceramic wares with great verve and skill. At the same time, in immense physical efforts, he personally made and glazed all the tiles for his two iconic public murals in South Florida: Ceremony of the Tropics (at the Santa Clara Metrorail station) and Brainstorm (at the FIU campus). The exhibition presents his works with clay and ceramics in the context of contemporaneous paintings, drawings and other small-scale works.

What has stayed in the past and drags the agonizing transit of time, the search of what has been forgotten and the eagerness to confront new experiences, risking the unpredictable has been the motive of the expression and sensibility of the human being under the kaleidoscope of art.

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

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

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

Aluna Art Foundation

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.

Room UL-105

FREE ADMISSION
Space is limited.

The films include an in-depth interview with Ms. Herrera, covering her life in Cuba, her marriage, her time in Paris, her development as an artist, her relative obscurity as a painter until her later years, and her life in New York City today, already as an internationally recognized artist.

Welcoming remarks by Aurora de Armendi, director of our Visual Arts Program. The screening will be followed by a commentary by the distinguished curator and art historian Alejandro Anreus, who will also entertain questions from the audience on Ms. Herrera’s career, her upcoming exhibits, and her continued contribution to Cuba’s cultural patrimony.

“Metallic”, a solo exhibition of works by Jorge Enrique at Waltman Ortega Fine Art, Miami

November 14 – December 16, 2015

Opening: November 14, 3-7 p.m

 

Waltman Ortega Fine Art
 2233 N.W. 2nd Avenue,
Miami, FL 33127 

In the most recent works by Jorge Enrique, the idea of beauty is at the center of the artist’s practice. While Enrique’s artwork of the last two decades communicated the irony that minimalist and abstract works could actually represent the deconstruction of an unforgiving cacophonous urban environment, and the gritty “truth” of graffitied texts and images could not be trusted, beauty in Enrique’s work has always been present.

Drawn to the intellectual spareness of abstraction and conceptualism, Enrique nevertheless uses a wide range of media – drawing, painting, silkscreen, monoprints, layered lifted images, sculpture and installation. And Enrique’s practice is very much concerned with materials shaping wood, sheet metal, paper, paint, epoxy, and resin into complex objects that undermine the ordinariness of their materials. These works are deliberate palimpsests – artworks whose history can be seen through the eroded exposure of under layers, visible by erasing, abrading, scraping and layering. The complex physicality of Enrique’s surfaces recalls ideas of age, decay, re-use, hidden images, and layers of meaning.

The Frost Art Museum welcomed artists to display a compilation of their best work, from giant urban-style tapestries to a collection of Everglades landscape paintings.

One of the more unique galleries, and a main attraction for the museum, is the “Celestial Traveler” exhibition by Carlos Estevez, a contemporary Cuban painter and an experimental mixed media artist.

The exhibit showcases an eclectic collection of different forms of artwork that he has worked on for years as he experimented with expressing different thoughts on the universe, religion, emotions and other topics. Viewers are provoked to think on an existential level, trying to guess the meanings behind Estevez’s intricate and symbolic pieces.

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

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.

The exhibition goes around questions related to XXI century History, pointing out History itself as a severe source of critics related to utopias.

Presenting techniques that range from appropriation to photo collage, What Remains, aims to explore the dichotomy of presence and absence of the subject.
