Our America presents more than ninety works of art across all media by seventy-two Latino artists active since the mid-twentieth century and gives voice to their broader American experience. Drawn entirely from the Smithsonian American Art Museum’s permanent collection, the exhibition explores how Latino artists shaped the artistic movements of their day and recalibrated key themes in American art and culture. Exhibition curated by Carmen Ramos.

The exhibition will likely tour to six venues after it closes in Washington DC. The national tour includes the following confirmed venues: The Patricia and Phillip Frost Art Museum at Florida International University in Miami, Florida (March 28, 2014-June 22, 2014); and the Utah Museum of Fine Arts in Salt Lake City, Utah (February 6, 2015-May 17, 2015).

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

October 25, 2013 – March 2, 2013

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.
