Maria Magdalena Campos-Pons – Art Practice as Research Blog

As a Cuban born artist, the embodied cognition that shapes the art practice of Maria Magdalena Campos-Pons is her deep cultural connections. For Pons, inquiry into cultural histories involves dealing with the way her black heritage is represented and the realization that “the history that I have access to is the history that is told through a voice that is not necessarily of the black people” (interview with the author, 1996). In investigating these historical dislocations Pons uses the body as a window through which to explore autobiographical aspects of the past.

Ramon Williams – Art as Knowledge – Interview

Miami Art Guide Magazine

By Francis Acea

Ramón Williams is an artist that shows little concern about boundaries. Formed as an art educator, his perception of art is undermined by a sense of integrality that allows him to move from one art discipline to another without giving too much importance to the medium.

Gory (Rogelio López Marín) at Chelsea Galleria – 2004

By Irina Leyva-Pérez

On April 8, the Design District’s Chelsea Gallery opened the show “A Small Retrospective” with works by Cuban photographer Rogelio López Marín (1953), known as Gory. Gory’s work in photography since the 1980s situates him among the most important Cuban artists of his generation. This period of great intensity in Cuban visual arts has been dubbed by critics as the “Cuban Renaissance,” being a kind of flowering of art after a somber decade.

Praxis International Art            by Julia P. Herzberg
So Quiet in Here was a memorable installation by Rubén Torres Llorca at El Museo del Barrio in New York in 1998. It was a parodic recreation of a historical account dating from Belgium’s colonial era that involved the Geographic Society of Brussels and an African family that was living inside the zoo in Brussels for a period of time before they quietly disappeared.

Revisiting the past – The paintings of Gustavo Acosta

By Irina Leyva-Pérez

If we look back at Gustavo’s oeuvre over a span of twenty years, we can easily recognize that he has been interested in social expressions of power. In the 1980s, when his work started receiving attention, he was using metaphors of Roman architecture as a reference to the Cuban social system. The dark, gray and muted colors were intentionally placed to reinforce the atmosphere of oppression that he wanted to convey. By representing some of the most recognizable buildings in Roman architecture, he drew a subtle parallel between the Imperial Roman and Cuban dictatorships.

Carlos Rodríguez Cárdenas – The Journey of the Conquest

Nkisi Project – Miami   By Rafael López-Ramos
Coinciding with the Art Basel Miami Beach fair, Carlos Rodríguez Cárdenas presented his personal show The Journey of the Conquest at the Nkisi Project space, curated by Bernardo Navarro with the collaboration of José Bedia. Since the mid-1980’s, Cárdenas’ work has been characterized by exquisite and ironic artistry, which has served him as much in representing the eschatological and social themes he exhibited at the 1989 Havana Biennial; as in capturing the tranquil urban and architectonic reflections that he now presents to us.

The Great Systems – Gustavo Acosta/Flights of Fancy – Carlos Gonzalez

Article appeared in Art Pulse Magazine 2009 “To soar” involves breeching the wall of the mundane to internalize, perhaps, the purest essence of our reality. Then, from above, startled by so much finiteness, we prepare for that voyage of yearning toward the city from whence we came and toward which we travel, there where stories are interconnected and new paths, journeys, and narrations are configured
