JOSÉ BEDIA: Recurrencia del animal solitario, at Fundación Iturria, Montevideo, Uruguay

December 2013 – February 2014

FUNDACIÓN ITURRIA
Schroeder 6514 – Montevideo

Artists’ Colony “Rosario Oriental” –

JOSÉ BEDIA (Havana, 1959) began his artistic education in 1972 at the Escuela de Bellas Artes San Alejandro, and graduated from Havana’s Instituto Superior de Arte in 1981. He represented Cuba in important Biennales, and his art is all over the world in the best museums and international galleries. He has also travelled around the world, with special interest in the Afro and Amerindian cultures, investigating in the least contacted areas of Perú, México, Kenya, Uganda, Congo and Angola, among many other destinations.

….

On this occasion, his travels take him to Uruguay, a country that doesn’t share much with his usual destinations: Uruguay hosts no jungles, native tribes or primitive rituals, nor great mountains or vast deserts.  Instead, it is known for its moderation in every sense of the word: geographical, climatic, social, cultural, political and economical, and certainly doesn’t seem, at first sight, as a profitable trip for the art of Bedia.

José Bedia: The artist as anthropologist

Inquisitive, world-traveling José Bedia gets the retrospective treatment.

By Phillip Valys, Sun Sentinel

5:44 p.m. EDT, May 17, 2012

When painter José Bedia answers the phone on a Monday afternoon, he’s standing inside a bustling marketplace in Lima, Peru, about to buy exotic food and souvenirs for his brother and son in Miami. The Cuban-born artist considers this journey to South America one of his so-called “artistic pilgrimages,” named as such because, for the past 30 years, Bedia has been making these far-flung journeys in pursuit of spiritual and cultural objects that inspire his artworks.

Transcultural Pilgrim: Three Decades of Work by Jose Bedia

When: Wednesday through Sept. 2 (opening reception is 6-9 p.m. Wednesday)

Where: Miami Art Museum, 101 W. Flagler St.

Cost: $8

Contact: 305-375-3000 or MiamiArtMuseum.org

Jose Bedia – Art Miami.TV

Is the quintessential “Trans-cultural Spiritual Pilgrim”. He is the archetype traveler whose painterly passages refer to his experiences of mobility and transpassing. Jose in many respects is a modern day Indiana Jones. His trips abroad start off about his encounters and observations jotted down in his journal, followed by dialogue, apprenticeship and ultimately long term friendships. His travels have produced a plethora of spiritual keepsakes, art and even shamans who have become friends for life.

18:00 Fiesta de inauguración para miembros del Fowler Museum
Domingo, 18 de septiembre

La exposición se abre al público general.

El Museo Fowler de UCLA presenta “Pilgrim Transcultural: Tres décadas de trabajo de José Bedia” una exposición que reúne 28 pinturas de gran formato, dibujos figurativos y una instalación para ofrecer una amplia retrospectiva del destacado artista cubano de la conocida como “Generación del 80″.

La retrospectiva del trabajo de Bedia se desarrolla como una narración de los viajes transculturales que ha hecho. En la primera sección de la exposición incluye ocho obras que tienen que ver con su participación en la religión afrocubana Palo Monte, que ha practicado desde principios de 1980 en Cuba.
Las obras en la siguiente sección describe la crónica de Bedia en su viaje por México, así como sus estudios con los pueblos Lakota y las visitas a los chamanes en el Amazonas peruano.

Otra agrupación de sus obras cuenta con cuatro obras que rinden homenaje a figuras revolucionarias del Caribe, que combinaron sus creencias religiosas con un fuerte sentido de activismo y la justicia social.
Tres últimas pinturas, de aproximadamente 15 pies de ancho, reflejan el interés de muchos años de Bedia por el arte africano, así como las peregrinaciones que hizo a Zambia para trabajar con los adivinos y ver bailes de máscaras.

Ajiaco: Stirrings of the Cuban Soul at Newark Museum, NJ

June 8 – August 14, 2011

Newark Museum

49 Washington Street,
Newark, NJ 07102-3176

In 1939, anthropologist Fernando Ortiz characterized Cuban culture as ajiaco, a rich stew consisting of a large variety of ingredients. The ingredients of the “stew” include Catholicism brought in by the Spaniards; the spirituality of the Yoruba slaves and their cultural traditions from Africa; and the Chinese indentured servants who brought Buddhism, Confucianism, and Taoism. The base of the stew is the indigenous people, such as Tainos, who were almost wiped out by the Spaniards. This exhibition is a survey of modern and contemporary Cuban artists that explores these rich cultural roots of Cuban art. In contemporary society, the “stew” has become thicker and richer as the influences become more complex and intermixed: the artist now borrows not only from the traditional cultures that populated the island, but also appropriates from contemporary everyday life. The exhibition includes works by leading artists in a variety of media, from paintings, works on paper and photography to mixed-media sculpture and installations.
