Antonia Eiriz’s at MDC

Through November 17th, 2013

 

MDC Museum of Art & Design, Freedom Tower
600 Biscayne Blvd.
Miami, FL

The sweeping canvases of the late Cuban painter Antonia Eiriz are not always easy to view. That is not to say they are harsh and hard — very little overt violence is expressed in these works; but the blurred faces and figures are contorted, silently shouting out in pain, or they are just silently suffering.

Many of her works — thought to walk the line between expressionism and abstraction — are covering the walls of MDC Museum of Art + Design at the Freedom Tower, a huge space well-suited to this retrospective of an artist under-appreciated in the United States, and Miami (although not by many within the art community). In fact, this is the biggest exhibit of her work, called Antonia Eiriz: A Painter and Her Audience.

In an interesting addition, curator and artist Michele Weinberg has included a number of contemporary artists who have been influenced by Eiriz. The variety of works highlighted in this section — from Luisa Basnuevo and Nereida Garcia-Ferraz to Ana Mendieta, Glexis Novoa and Tomas Sanchez — underscore that Eiriz’s influence was far broader than simply imparting the tricks of the trade to a new group of emerging artists.

Miami, FL
 

The MDC Museum of Art + Design (MoAD) presentsTranscending Narratives of Humanity: Selected Works from the CINTAS Foundation Fellows Collection at its National Historic Landmark Freedom Tower. Free and open to the public.

Transcending Narratives of Humanity explores artists who use art as successful vehicles of narrative, presenting works that conjure the darkest corners of the subconscious, magical reconstructions of inanimate objects and mastery of form, while investigating the interrogation of our personal and cultural identity in modern society.

The minimal exhibition features just six works by CINTAS Foundation Fellows Ernesto de la Vega Pujol, Pablo Cano, Mario Petrirena, Juan Nickford, Ernesto Oroza and María Elena González. Curated by MDC MoAD Curatorial Assistant Natalie Pérez, this exhibition reflects the CINTAS Foundation’s vision and multidisciplinary approach to the contemporary artists it supports.

A 20-Year Cuban Art Collection

By Brett Sokol
January 2011

“We’re sitting in a renaissance!” Ricardo Pau-Llosa happily thundered to the crowd seated before him, gesturing to the artwork hanging inside downtown Miami’s Freedom Tower. “What more proof do you need?” It was hard to argue with Pau-Llosa’s evidence.
