Rubén Torres-Llorca, José Bedia, Cruz Azaceta, González-Torres, Ana Mendieta, Sandra Ramos, Carlos Rodríguez Cárdenas, among Cuban artists included in “A to Z of Caribbean Art”, an anthology of artists of the Caribbean

Robert & Christopher Publishers, a Trinidad-based art book imprint, has published an anthology of important artists from the Caribbean, including Cuban artists from the diaspora.

A to Z of Caribbean Art is a joyous celebration of the lives and works of many of the most outstanding, prolific, groundbreaking, critical, fascinating, and controversial artists of the Caribbean. Thanks to the abécédaire format of this book, a multiplicity of artists have ended up in lively dialogue here. We connect people separated by geography, language, and time: 120 years of movements, moments, schools, and sociopolitical contexts; countries as far apart as Bermuda in the north to Guyana in the south; and the French, Dutch, English, and Spanish Caribbean.

Each artist is represented by a page that shows a definitive work, biographical details, and a short write-up about their oeuvre. These artists were selected based on a number of factors, including critical discourse around their work, inclusion in a significant publication, work written about in regional or international trade magazine, and participation in a curated exhibition at a major institution, or at a regional or international biennial.

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.

The two artists share an interest in anthropology and in crossing borders between different cultures. Their work is an antidote to disenchantment in the world, and they seek to create connections between traditional cultures and contemporary society.

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.
