Humberto Castro – “Tracing Antilles”

16 October  – 16 February  2014

Opening Reception October 16th from 6-9pm

The Patricia & Phillip Frost Art Museum at FIU
10975 SW 17th St.
Miami, FL

Humberto Castro executes an artistic journey across the Antilles in an ever-transforming exhibition that conceptually circumnavigates the islands of the Caribbean. FIU’s Frost Art Museum commissioned the Cuban-born contemporary artist to create a new multimedia site-specific installation entitled Tracing Antilles. Curated by Ana Estrada, the exhibition is the result of an artistic investigation of the historical events that have shaped the region’s cultures through colonization and emigration.

Humberto Jesús Castro García (Havana, Cuba, 1957– ) is one of the most active members of the “Generation of the 1980s,” which transformed the aesthetic and conceptual art scene of Cuba. He studied at the San Alejandro National School of Fine Arts and at the Higher Institute of Art in Havana. In 1983 he founded the creative team “Hexagon” in which, alongside other artists, he mounted installations aimed at provoking public participation in the work. In 1999, he moved to the United States and currently lives and works in Miami.

Maria Brito honored at the Frost Art Museum

Maria Brito is honored at the Frost Art Museum in Miami.

…..Your first encounter with Maria Brito’s show at the Frost Art Museum could be confusing. You may even wonder why it’s there. If so, you’ll please Brito, a rebel at heart who likes controversy. Celebrated Miami artist and FIU alumna, Brito traces her rebellious spirit to the long ago moment she concealed gold jewelry in clothes she wore on a Pedro Pan flight from Havana to Miami. Everyone knew that doing this risked terrible consequences, she recalls, but she couldn’t leave the jewelry, a small bracelet still in her possession, behind.
