Human, so human, by Angela Valella, at Farside Gallery, Miami

February 5 – March 30, 2014
Opening Reception: Saturday, February 22
7 to 9 p.m.

Farside Gallery
1305 Galloway Road (87th Avenue),
Miami, FL 33174

In 1926, El Lissitzky designed the Abstrakt Kabinett for the Hanover Museum. The spectator, conceived as an active participant in the staging of a modern aesthetic, moved through a changing but perfectly complete environment: The angle of the point of view fused with the total vision, a vision in which the seeing subject, the modern spectator, was in possession of an ordered, progressive and universal visual language. (On Abstract Art, Briony Fer (1997, 2000).

The exhibition Human, so human migrates across media including installation, sculpture, photography, prints, collages and video. For this, the exhibition takes the cue from a seminal phrase, “Is better to be an artwork than to be an artist” by Friedrich Nietzsche after which the show paraphrases its name. It results in a multiple groupings of objects both found and fabricated to construct internal relationships.

Humberto Castro – Farside Gallery

FARSIDE GALLERY PRESENTS Feeding Your Soul

Exhibition of Works by Artist Humberto Castro

On View January 9 – February 8, 2012

Opening Reception:  Saturday, January 21, 2012

Humberto Castro is a Cuban artist born in Havana in 1957.  He is a graduate from the San Alejandro Academy of Fine Arts in 1977 and earned his master degree from the Higher Institute of Art of Havana in 1984.

The exhibition at Farside Gallery will highlight the relationship between man and animals in Humberto Castro’s artistic exploration.  The exhibition also showcases the close connection between his drawings, which span over several decades, and various recent paintings.

Since the beginning of his career in Cuba, he received numerous awards in printmaking, drawing, painting, and installations among them the First prize in printmaking at the Salon de Piquant Format, at the Salon Trace de Matzo, at the Concurs Literature en la Plastic, at the Encounter de Grabado`83, and at the Casa de Las Americas.  He also received First prize in installation at the Salon UNEAC, the National prize in drawing at the Salon Trace de Matzo and at the Salon Provincial de Arts Plastics in Havana.

He is also the recipient of various international awards:  First international prize in drawing at the Triennial Intergrafic of Berlin, First international prize in printmaking at the Triennial de Arte Contra la Guerra of Poland, and First Prize in printmaking at the VII San Juan Print Biennial of Puerto Rico.

In 1983, he founded the team Hexagon in which, alongside other artists, he mounted installations aimed at provoking public participation in the work.  Castro is one of the most active members of the group widely recognized as the “Cuban 80’s Generation”, which generated changes in the aesthetic and conceptual art scene of the island.

In 1989 he immigrated to France, where he lived for ten years and became active in the Parisian intellectual scene, holding exhibitions and giving conferences across Europe. Castro was an appointed member of the Maison des Artistes Français and he received the prize Toison d’Or at the Art Jonction fair in Cannes in 1994. Thereafter, he moved to the United States, where he lives and works since 1999.

Humberto Castro’s work is represented in numerous museums and public collections such as: the National Museum of Fine Arts, Havana, Cuba; the Museum of Art Against the War of Lublin, Poland; the Museum of Modern Art of Sao Paulo, Brazil; the Museum of Arts Fort Lauderdale, Florida; the Frost Museum of Florida International University, Miami, FL; the Museum of Latin-American Art of Long Beach, California; the Snite Museum of Art of Notre Dame University, South Bend, Indiana among others.

In addition, his work has appeared in books and publications worldwide, among them New Art of Cuba by Luis Camnitzer, Memoria: Cuban Art of the 20th Century (California/International Art Foundation), and Cuba Siglo XX: modernidad y sincretismo (Centre d’Art Santa Mònica (Barcelona, Spain).

The opening night reception for Feeding Your Soul is Saturday, January 21, 2012, 7 – 9 pm and is free and open to the public. The exhibition will be on view from January 9 through February 8, 2012  weekdays from 11 am to 5 pm.

Rogelio López Marín (Gory): Selected Photographs 1985 – 1994 at FARSIDE GALLERY, Miami

September 21 – October 28, 2011

Opening Reception: Saturday, September 24

Farside Gallery

1305 SW 87th Avenue,
Miami, FL 33174

by appointment 305-264-3355

Rogelio López Marín (Gory) was born in Havana, Cuba and he lives and works in Miami, FL. He has a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Painting from the National School of Art in Havana. He took a Photographic and Graphic Design course under the tutorial of the Cuban artist Raúl Martínez and has a Master of Art History from the University of Havana.

This exhibition contains over twenty important photographic works by Gory for the period between 1985 and 1994. The work displayed encompasses a series with a marked conceptualist interest with texts by Michael Ende (It’s Only Water in a Stranger’s Tear) and poems by his wife Lucia Ballester and includes more orthodox photographs, with a marked conceptual closeness to documentary photography. All the works are linked by the same toned gelatin silver print technique that gives them a formal unity accentuated by the artist’s unique vision.

Hugo Michel Hernández, entre la abstracción y la palabra escrita

Por Carlos M. Luis

Especial/El Nuevo Herald

3 de abril de 2011

“Sólo comprendo lo que pienso cuando lo dibujo” fue el título de una exposición del pintor cubano Hugo Michel Hernández (La Habana, 1972) que hiciera en México en el 2003, cuya obra puede verse actualmente en la Farside Gallery. De entrada ese título resume, en gran medida, lo que este pintor se propone. Su obra, que oscila entre la imagen abstracta y la palabra escrita, representa, por lo tanto, una tensión no del todo ausente, en muchos pintores contemporáneos.

A 20-Year Cuban Art Collection

By Brett Sokol
January 2011
