October 05, 2010This week, we round up exhibitions by José A. Figueroa, Carlos Estévez, Carlos Garaicoa, and Abel Barroso, held in Los Angeles, Madrid, and Havana, respectively. Despite the ongoing global crisis, the Cuban art factory is going strong.
September 02, 2010An exhibition of new and recent work by artists Flora Fong and Li Domínguez Fong opens tomorrow evening, September 3, at Cernuda Arte in Coral Gables, Florida. The two artists will travel from Havana for the exhibition opening. Dramatically different in style, their work will be exhibited for the first time in a double show.
August 24, 2010La enmienda que hay en mí (Making Amends), an exhibition of works by internationally acclaimed Cuban artist Carlos Garaicoa, opened last night (August 23) at the University of South Florida Contemporary Art Museum in Tampa. On view: “The Crown Jewels,” the cut-paper metropolis “Bend City,” and other recent installations, sculptures, and manipulated photographs.
July 26, 2010As part of the group Los Once (The Eleven), Raúl Martínez was one of the stars of the 1950s Cuban abstract-art adventure. Later, he painted revolutionary leaders such as Ché Guevara and Jose Martí, and young faces of Cuba in the 60s and 70s. Rodriguez went on to master photography, book design, and teaching. Openly gay, he endured discrimination and censorship. Now, at long last, his work has come to New York.
