The fall season continues as CIFO joins the Cuenca Biennial, Alejandro Anreus curates Rafael Soriano, and Zilia Sánchez opens a major retrospective in Washington, DC. Cuban artists join the Creative Time summit in Miami, and Alexandre Arrechea opens a solo show at Fredric Snitzer—just in time for Art Basel Miami Beach.
The fall season kicks off next week with openings in Miami and South Korea, followed by Carmen Herrera in New York—then moves into a busy October with Bruguera at the Tate, Mendieta at the Jeu de Paume, ArtBo in Bogotá, and "¡Cuba!" in Denver.
The last time Jorge Otero came to New York, he dressed as a Cuban peasant for a performance work, listening for a stampede in Times Square.
