Pavel Acosta and Juana Valdes, Summer 2015 Guttenberg Arts Residents.

JUANA VALDES

My artwork is a multi-disciplinary practice that combines the process of printmaking, photography, sculpture and ceramic. It integrates the social-political discourse within the art object to analyze relationships between contemporary and historical imagery and their connection to the social, political and economical dominance of the cultures that produce them and their impact on cultural memory.

PAVEL ACOSTA

All my work revolves around stealing. In Cuba, after graduating from the Higher Institute of Art and with little access to unaffordable art materials, I stole dry paint from the crumbling city walls and the objects around me to do collages of recycled paint on paper and canvases. I wanted to survive as an artist in the same way people does in Cuba – smuggling the State resources within the black market as the way to compensate for low salaries and scarcities. I was interested in exploring the boundaries between destroying something, or commiting a crime and creating, as well as the concepts of etics and morality within my society.

Guttenberg Arts is dedicated to promoting the visual arts by providing practicing artists with the space and time to develop their work while engaging with the public. Guttenberg Arts aims to increase opportunities for supported artists by expanding their community through artistic collaborations and promotion to curators and collectors in the tri-state area.

Carlos Martiel’s “Ascensión”, at MAAS/Mandragoras Art Space, New York

May 16, 2015

MAAS | Mandragoras Art Space
3601 36 Ave. 3rd. Fl
Long Island City, NY 11106

MAAS | Mandragoras Art Space is proud to open its 2015 Programming presenting Cuban artist Carlos Martiel, on his first solo performance in New York City.

Where is the line that divides a hero from a murderer?

“Ascención” questions the perception of heroism as dependent on the use of power in matters of political conflict and world peace. Martiel bases his critique on the military system, where heroism is grounded on rank and rivalry, and that vindicates authoritarianism and the sacrifice of life for the common good.

In his piece, the artist creates a compelling situation where the audience is able to experience the consequences of patriotism and hierarchy. The problem of violence and power is a constant on Martiel’s discourse. On this occasion, it questions those at the forefront of the arms race, promoting themselves as peacemakers, but ultimately enforcing a world of dominance.

Revision: Angel Delgado at Aluna Art Foundation, Miami

April 18th to June 27th, 2015

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

Curated by Aluna Curatorial Collective

Aluna Art Foundation inaugurates a new headquarter in Little Havana, Miami, on April 18th of 2015, conceived as a space for art and culture to generate new dynamics in the sector and in the city.

Delgado incorporates sculptures and drawings from the last decade, with media such as soaps, trays or sheets derived from the practices of survival from prison. It also presents serigraphs inspired by an alphabet invented then and large paintings about forms of oppression in a dizzying and globalized world but corroded social indifference. This show will take place with the release of several exhibitions dedicated to the concept of Parrhesia, a term which in ancient Greek meant “speak the truth,”- and the contradictions between censorship and the exercise of freedom of thought in artistic creation and literary.

An installation of two artworks by Felix Gonzalez-Torres will be featured this spring as part of the Great Hall Exhibitions series at the Institute of Fine Arts, New York University. Organized by Katharine J. Wright and Susanna V. Temkin, this installation pairs two works encompassing different media and conceptual practices that speak to major themes in the artist’s oeuvre. The manifestable candy piece “Untitled (Placebo-Landscape-for Roni)”, 1993 and the static photographic work “Untitled” (Natural History), 1990 offer a point of access into overarching strategies that the artist employed throughout the course of his career. The two works will be on view daily, 1:00 to 4:00 PM, from March 30 – May 1, 2015.


This installation was made possible by the generous support of Eileen and Michael Cohen

Luis Mallo: Interruptions, at Praxis International – New York

Opening reception: Thursday, Jan. 8, 2015   6-8 pm

Jan. 8 – Feb. 21, 2015

Praxis New York
541 West 25th Street,
New York, NY
 

Luis Mallo presents in this exhibition a group of visually arresting images meant to stimulate us to question notions of familiarity. With this series Mallo wants us to understand that the manner in which we perceive our surroundings is contingent by nature. Most of what we see and experience is illusory and therefore, deceptive. His scenes reveal this illusory nature by offering partially concealed and most often perplexing representations of the surrounding landscape and its various props.

For Mallo, Interruptions is not an outcome, but a vital process, a way of looking that may offer a fresh perspective. As previously done with other series, he invites us to look deeper and unearth that which lies latently waiting to be discovered under the veil of familiarity.

Abelardo Morell: Some Recent Pictures at Edwynn Houk Gallery, New York

Through Dec. 20 

Edwynn Houk Gallery
745 Fifth Ave.
New York, NY 10151

Edwynn Houk Gallery is pleased to present a solo exhibition of new work by Abelardo Morell (American, b. Havana, 1948). Following his inaugural exhibition in 2013 with Galerie Edwynn Houk in Zurich, this show marks the artist’s first exhibition at Edwynn Houk Gallery in New York. The sixteen large-scale photographs on view will highlight the scope of Morell’s most recent subjects and his continued experiments with perception.

Reveling in the expectations of the photographic process, Morell’s work is charged with discoveries concerning optics, aperture, exposure, and most notably, camera obscura. Since 1991, Morell has been using the camera obscura to effectively turn entire rooms into cameras: the outside world is transposed onto the interior, creating unexpected and often surreal imagery.

Glexis Novoa – Painting on Canvas, at Juan Ruiz Galeria, Miami

Thursday, 16 October, 2014 to Saturday, 22 November, 2014

JUAN RUIZ GALERÍA
301 NW 28th Street
Miami, Florida 33127

Painting on Canvas is Cuban artist’s Glexis Novoa’s first solo exhibition at Juan Ruiz Gallery, specifically noteworthy for the following two aspects:  the artist’s revisiting of an early period interrupted by exile in the mid 1990s and the context in which the work was created, Havana, where the artist recently set up a studio after a twenty-year hiatus.  Novoa’s return to the formal qualities of the Etapa Práctica [the Practical Stage] and to the specificity of the Cuban context reveals poignant aspects of contemporary Cuban art today and the artist’s place in it.

Angel Delgado: Uncomfortable Landscapes, at B&B Art Exchange, Santa Monica, CA

Opening Reception: Saturday October 11th, 6-9 pm

Curated by Marisa Caichiolo

Co-curated by Evelyn Pener

B&B Art Exchange
Bergamot Station Arts Center
2525 Michigan Ave., Unit F2
Santa Monica, CA 90404

 

“In his new series of paintings titled “Uncomfortable Landscapes” cuban artist Angel Delgado explores a theme constantly present throughout his work: the human condition and its relationship to the notions of freedom and identity. In this occasion, Delgado presents a series of paintings that far from the traditional idea of landscape, they constitute a view, indeed, but of rather a social panorama of what one would call modern societies. By juxtaposing everyday objects, aerial views of prisons and human silhouettes, the artist creates a composition that evokes a state of alienation. The individual seems utterly reduced to a series of social codes, to which he is, nevertheless, inextricably bonded.” (Patricia Ortega Miranda)

Culver City, CA 90232

Culver City (September 15, 2014): On Saturday, September 20, CHG Circa presents “Giants Among Us” a group show examining the role of the Giant in contemporary times. Modern day Giants prove to be more psychologi- cal than tangible in most cases, except perhaps when disguised as championship basketball centers or infamous wrestlers. Yet, since the very beginning of story-telling, giants have recurred as personalities to fear and respect, making mere humans feel small in their shadow, or humongous when the monster is overcome in battle. You’ll see today’s Giant depicted as fantasy, as emotion, even as edible.

Allora & Calzadilla: Fault Lines, at Gladstone Gallery, Chelsea, NY

September 13 – October 11, 2014

 

Gladstone Gallery
515 West 24th Street
New York, NY 10011
 

Gladstone Gallery is pleased to present a solo exhibition by Allora & Calzadilla. Fault Lines will explore the overlapping mechanics of polyphonic vocal texturing, geological and sculptural displacements, and adversarial rhetorical language in a new performance-based work, featuring an original composition by Guarionex Morales-Matos. The work will feature performances by young male vocalists from the American Boychoir School and the Transfiguration Boychoir. The performances will take place on the hour Tuesday through Friday from 1 – 5 pm with an additional performance at 5:30 pm, and Saturdays hourly from 12:30 – 5:30 pm.

Fault Lines
 consists of a group of ten stone sculptures whose formal vocabulary derives from geological faults – fractures or discontinuities in the Earth’s crust – and choral risers, a set of tall and wide steps used for standing while singing. While the mineral composition of the rocks in Fault Lines took millions of years to assemble, cutting, removing, and displacing sections of their hardened mass has caused an instant and ever-lasting rupture in geological time. The resulting sculptural permutations function as choral risers, which are dispersed throughout the exhibition space and used by two boy sopranos, or trebles, to engage in a verbal duel.

Alexandre Arrechea: The Map and The Fact at Magnan Metz Gallery, New York

September 13 – October 11, 2014

Artist Reception: Friday, September 12th 6-8 PM

Magnan Metz Gallery
521 West 26th Street,
New York, NY 10001

Magnan Metz Gallery is pleased to present the fifth solo exhibition for Alexandre Arrechea. The show will be on view from September 13 – October 11, 2014 with a reception for the artist from 6-8 pm on Friday, September 12th.

The often overlooked study and its relationship to the realized artwork have always been of significant importance to Alexandre Arrechea. The two co-existed in the same space; it’s the methodology that shows the natural process in creating the artwork. Traditionally the first stands as the matrix of the second. For this exhibition, however, Arrechea has turned the tables. The artist explains, “With The Map and the Fact I intend to rearrange this relationship with the objective to ask questions of our reality so the drawing in this project becomes a structure closer to the language of a map or a graphical representation of a given ‘territory’. The object is related to this simply through the construction of a section of that map.”

Jorge Rodriguez Gerada: National Portrait Gallery Commissions Cuban American Artist to Create a Large-Scale Landscape Portrait for the National Mall

The Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery has commissioned a grand landscape portrait from Cuban American urban artist, Jorge Rodríguez-Gerada, to be placed temporarily on the National Mall in October.

For the work titled “Out of Many, One,” the English translation of E pluribus unum, Rodríguez-Gerada will use several images of people photographed in Washington, D.C., to create a composite portrait that will not only be an interactive walk-through experience for visitors but will also be viewable from the newly reopened Washington Monument and from space. The work will be placed on a 10-acre site and stretch across 6 acres of land midway between the World War II and Lincoln memorials along the south side of the Reflecting Pool.

Maria Martinez-Cañas in group show “Portraiture Now: Staging the Self”, at The National Portrait Gallery, Washington, DC..

Aug. 22, 2014  through April 12, 2015

The National Portrait Gallery
Eighth and F Streets NW,
Washington, D.C. 20001

 
“Portraiture Now: Staging the Self” features the work of David Antonio Cruz, Carlee Fernandez, María Martínez-Cañas, Rachelle Mozman, Karen Miranda Rivadaneira, and Michael Vasquez, all artists of Latino background, who make us aware of how identities are constructed and negotiated via portraiture. Seeking to relieve portraiture of its charge to memorialize individuals and convey essential aspects of their identities, they use it instead to explore the ambiguities and changes in individual character. Theatricality is central to their inquiry, as they represent narratives remembered or imagined from their own family histories, or superimpose portraits of their loved ones over themselves, looking for what is shared or unique in individuality, searching like an actor for a character. As they present themselves in a staged manner, portraiture loses its aura of certainty, and becomes an evolving map for finding oneself and others.

August 23, 2014 2:00PM – 4:00PM

Nova Southeastern University’s Museum of Art | Fort Lauderdale
One East Las Olas Blvd.
Fort Lauderdale, FL 33301

Panel Discussion on Cuban Art with Ramon Cernuda and Margarita Cano, moderated by Bonnie Clearwater, Director and Chief Curator, NSU Museum of Art Fort Lauderdale

Ramón Cernuda is a publisher, editor, writer, collector and internationally recognized expert on Cuban Art. After 30 years pursuing a lifelong love of Cuban art as a private art collector and researcher, he established Cernuda Arte gallery in 2000. He has been the publisher of La Gran Enciclopedia Martiana and a founding member of the Enciclopedia de Cuba Publishing Group. He was a member of the board of directors of the Cuban Museum of Arts and Culture and served as Vice President from 1987-1990.

Born in Havana, Cuba, artist and arts organizer Margarita Cano arrived in the United States in 1962. She worked at the Miami-Dade Public Library as a Community Relations and Art Services Coordinator. In 1983, she organized the landmark exhibition, The Miami Generation: Nine Cuban American Artists (curated by Giulio Blanc) for Miami’s Cuban Museum of Arts and Culture. In 1993, Cano began painting full-time and creating one-of-a-kind artist books. Her work is reminiscent of the illuminated manuscripts of the High Middle Ages, and her idealized landscapes of her beloved island serve as settings for the interaction of the sacred and the mundane.

Leonel Matheu: Crossroads of the Dystopia at The Frost Art Museum, Miami

JULY 12 – SEPTEMBER 14, 2014

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

Cuban-born artist Leonel Matheu has been a prominent figure on the national and international arts scene for over twenty years. Crossroads of the Dystopia is Matheu’s first major survey exhibition. His works range from colored pencil drawings, ink on paper, oil on canvas, to video, multimedia and public installations. Curated by Janet Batet, the exhibition presents more than 20 years of work and provides a comprehensive overview of Matheu’s most distinctive imagery. In describing his body of work, curator Batet says: “If a single symbol could summarize the iconic work of Leonel Matheu, it would be the enigmatic head-a sort of dome-that appears as a constant throughout his work. It serves as a self-portrait and collective portrayal of a nation marked by diaspora and dystopia. This symbol embodies the symptoms and stigma of contemporary global society. With a masterful use of the synthetic graphic design language, Matheu builds up a personal and yet universal iconography that he interweaves in intimate fables of our daily existence. Spirituality, technology, passion, solitude, dreams, chimeras, and deceptions are at the core of his thoughtful body of work.”
