April 23, 2013The spring art season is in full swing—so much so that we’re running two Updates this week to squeeze it all in. In this installment, the celebrations continue at the Museo Nacional in Havana, Manuel Mendive opens a retrospective in Los Angeles, and Cuban artists are featured in group shows in Gdansk, Geneva, Australia, Miami.
June 07, 2012Opening next week at El Museo del Barrio, The Studio Museum in Harlem, and the Queens Museum of Art, Caribbean: Crossroads of the World surveys this rich and complex region through more than two hundred years of art and visual history. Here, Cuban Art News gives readers a first look at this thought-provoking exhibition.
May 31, 2012As the 11th Habana Bienal prepared to open earlier this month, the Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes hosted the debut of two solo exhibitions: Abel Barroso – Cuando caen las fronteras (When the borders fall) and Sandra Ramos – Entre cercanías y lejanías llevadas a cabo (Between nearnesses and distances achieved). The day before the shows opened, Cuban Art News dropped by for a chat.
January 16, 2012Described by the U.K. website Publishing Perspectives as a “de-facto digital library of Cuban culture,” the online journal La Jiribilla celebrated its tenth anniversary in 2011. Among its end-of-year articles was a detailed recounting of the year in art on the island. We are pleased to present this “2011 Visual Cartography” by Mabel Machado as a two-part series on Cuban Art News, where it appears in English for the first time.
