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.

‘La profundidad del silencio’, un recorrido por la vida y obra de Rafael Soriano – Documental dirigido por Jorge Moya

By Sarah Moreno

El Nuevo Herald

May 25, 2011

Durante las cinco décadas que ha vivido en el exilio, el pintor Rafael Soriano llegaba a su casa todos los días después de una jornada de trabajo, en oficios no relacionados con su vocación, y luego de comer y descansar un poco, entraba a su estudio y pasaba el resto de la noche buscando llegar con su pincel a mundos desconocidos.
Ese taller íntimo y mágico, en una casita del suroeste de Miami, donde Soriano rescató, en múltiples lienzos, las tonalidades cambiantes de su añorada bahía de Matanzas, es una de las locaciones del documental La profundidad del silencio. Su estreno en televisión, mañana en La mirada indiscreta, coincide con el cuarto aniversario en el aire del espacio que presenta el crítico de cine Alejandro Ríos, los domingos a las 8 p.m. por América Tevé.

“Soriano nació con la necesidad de pintar. Por su sensibilidad, y en cualquier condición, él hubiera llegado a ser un gran pintor, pero creo que el exilio lo llevó a ser un genio’’, expresó Jorge Moya, director de La profundidad del silencio, un material cinematográfico que debe verse no sólo como un recorrido por la carrera y el ámbito familiar de uno de los maestros de la pintura cubana, sino como un homenaje a los creadores exiliados que han persistido en el ejercicio de su vocación y han contado con el incondicional apoyo de sus allegados.
