Louisiana: Mon Amour-An exhibiton by Luis Cruz Azaceta at Acadiana Center for the Arts, Louisiana

November 9, 2013-February 8, 2014

Acadiana Center for the Arts
101 W. Vermilion St. Lafayette, Louisiana 70501
 

Luis Cruz Azaceta was born in Havana, Cuba in 1942 and currently lives and works in New Orleans, Louisiana. As a teenager he witnessed many acts of violence on the streets of Havana: bombs in stores, cinemas and theaters; shoot-outs, arrests and torture of citizens by Batista secret police. In 1959, the Cuban revolution brought jubilation and celebration when Castro promised to restore Cuba’s constitution and free elections. Months later executions began, businesses were confiscated and some closed. Azaceta’s experiences under both Batista and postrevolution impacted his vision—creating a sensitivity towards violence, human cruelty, injustice and alienation—which later become central themes in his work.

Cuban Americans – Our America: The Latino Presence In American Art – Smithsonian Museum

October 25, 2013 – March 2, 2013

 

American Art Museum
8th And F Street NW
Washington DC
 

An exhibition opening next month at the Smithsonian American Art Museum, “Our America: The Latino Presence in American Art,” will highlight a chapter of art history that remains a secret to far too many Americans.

Since joining the Smithsonian in 2010, E. Carmen Ramos, the curator of Latino art at the American Art Museum, has had an ambitious mandate: to strengthen our holdings of Latino art and present that collection in a fresh way. “Our America,” which she curated, will display the results of that quest so far. It will include 92 works (by 72 artists), fully 63 of which have been acquired since 2011.

This exhibit is well represented by Cuban American Artists including Luis Cruz Azaceta, Maria Brito, Maria Magdalena Campos-Pons, Teresita Fernandez, Ana Mendieta, Abelardo Morell, Maria Martinez-Cañas, Arturo Rodriguez, Emilio Sanchez, and Rafael Soriano.

Luis Cruz Azaceta: Shifting States

Arthur Roger Gallery – New Orleans

By D. Eric Bookhardt

ARTPULSE magazine

It has been said, most famously by the 17th-century poet John Donne, that “No man is an island.” And while no doubt true in the philosophical sense that Donne intended, human history has largely been defined by the things that isolate and divide us as individuals and communities, not the least of which are the ideological and geographical divisions that confront us in everyday life. In ways both physical and metaphorical, Luis Cruz Azaceta has long been an artist of islands. Born in Havana, Cuba, in 1942, he emigrated to this country in 1960, where he studied at the School of Visual Arts and made a name for himself on another island, Manhattan, as he rose to prominence in the Neo-Expressionist movement of the 1970s and 1980s.

Virgilio Garza, Head of Latin American Paintings at Christie’s commented: “Major records for modern and contemporary Latin American works were set….  The sale was led by Matta’s La révolte des contraires, which realized $5 million, against the high estimate of $2.5 million, and set a world auction record for the artist, a long overdue recognition for one of the most influential artists of the 20th century.

Luis Cruz Azaceta – PanAmerican ArtProjects

By Janet Batet

Art Nexus

Issue #79 Dec – Feb 2011

The so called post-industrial society has generated a schizophrenic and paranoid individual that thrives in a sort of autophagy that leads to self-annulation. This is precisely the individual and leitmotiv that animates the work by Luis Cruz Azaceta, a relentless explorer of contemporary human drama, whose work is now showcased at the Panamerican Art Projects Gallery.

Luis Cruz Azaceta. Back in Cuban-American land – Interview

Miami Art Guide

December 2010

By Francis Acea

Luis Cruz Azaceta is an award-winning artist whose works have been exhibited and included in numerous collections worldwide. Being a Cuban-born who left the island in his early years to settle in NYC made him also and expat teenager. I believe that young Luis didn’t have much of an idea of how this particular event would shape his future then – neither in a good nor in a bad way -  but in the way only expats get to know with time: the challenge of having to re-invent the self in order to accommodate the many contradictions arising from the culture shock, or what many simply call “to adapt”.

Luis Cruz Aaceta at Pan American Art Projects, Miami

Pan American Art Projects is proud to announce our representation in Florida of Luis Cruz Azaceta with the inauguration of his first exhibition at our gallery from October 23rd through December 7th, 2010. The show will mark his return to the Miami art scene.
Trajectories/Trayectorias is a major exhibit which will occupy the entire gallery, and will include several works from the solo show Swimming to Havana presented at the New Orleans Museum of Art earlier this year. In the central piece of the exhibit Hell Act (2009) the artist ironically depicts a fleet of makeshift rafts aimlessly and helplessly bobbing around like toys in an enormous bath tub; the work illustrates the artist’s constant struggle with the isolation, loss, and inexorability of being an immigrant. Also included in the exhibit will be works like Spill: Where is Superman when you need him, (2010) from his most recent series Spill. The piece touches on the inadequacies of human solutions and institutions in the face of catastrophe. There will also be sculptures, installations, and paintings from other recent periods included in the show.
Azaceta’s visual language has a powerful sense of distortion, highlighting a juxtaposition of agony and humor. This year marks 50 years since the artist’s departure from his birthplace, his first world and the one that has continued to be present in him throughout his creative journey. The Swimming to Havana series expresses the bittersweet impracticality of a distant desire to return to the past.
The artist’s fearlessness and determination to explore controversial issues has gained him recognition as a key figure in American contemporary art. In 2009 he received the Joan Mitchell Foundation Grant, which followed other important fellowships and grants, from the Guggenheim Foundation, the National Endowment for the Arts, the New York Foundation for the Arts, and the Cintas Fellowship for Cuban Artists. Luis Cruz Azaceta’s work is in important collections such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art, MoMA, the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Smithsonian Institute of Art, the Museum of Contemporary Art (MARCO) of Monterrey, Mexico, and the Fine Arts Museum of Caracas, Venezuela.
