Art from music? Music from trees? The day before it opened in midtown Manhattan, María Elena González took a break from installing to talk about Tempo, and how she came to make music--and art--from birch trees.
José Yaque opens in London and Pisa, Diango Hernández prepares a show in Basel, and Levi Orta opens this weekend in Barcelona. Cuban artists join group shows in West Palm Beach, Birmingham, Alabama, and New York City, and Kcho and Juan Roberto Diago hit the spotlight in Miami.
The show, opening this Thursday, February 9, at the Lowe Art Museum, is the artist’s first in South Florida in over a decade. Co-curator and architecture scholar Victor Deupi spoke with Cuban Art News about the exhibition, Sanchez’s career, and the role of architecture in his art.
Earlier this week, we dropped in on the installation of Yoan Capote: Palangre, a show of recent paintings embedded with thousands of fish hooks. The artist walked through the show with us, in a conversation that ranged from Romantic painters to Cubans’ relationship to the sea.
Tomorrow evening, the Ethelbert Cooper Gallery of African & African American Art at Harvard University welcomes Diago: The Pasts of This Afro-Cuban Present. Juan Roberto Diago and the show’s curator, Alejandro de la Fuente, spoke about the exhibition with Cuban Art News.
