Join the Lowe Art Museum and the Cuban Heritage Collection for a conversation between Curator, Dr. Elizabeth Cerejido, Esperanza Bravo de Varon Chair, UM Cuban Heritage Collection, and Assistant Curator, Ana Clara Silva, Director of Exhibitions at Faena Art as they discuss Radical Conventions: Cuban American Art from the 1980s.
A landmark exhibition, Radical Conventions is the first major museum presentation to focus solely on Cuban American art created during the 1980s. By exploring the heterogeneous nature of Cuban diasporic work from this pivotal decade, the show offers a critical counterpoint to an often binary, identity-focused narrative by framing the artists’ works more expansively within the aesthetic frameworks prevalent in the American avant-garde of the late 70s–80s and the era’s broader socio-economic, cultural, and political landscape. The exhibition features nearly 100 works by 25 Cuban American artists representative of various generations.
Artists in the exhibition:
Carlos Alfonzo, Mario Algaze, José Bedia, Jaime Bellechasse, Juan Boza, Ernesto Briel, María Brito, Pablo Cano, Luis Cruz Azaceta, Fernando García, Nereida García-Ferraz, Juan González, Félix González-Torres, Nicolás Guillén, Tony Labat, Silvia Lizama, J. Tomás López, Carlos Maciá, María Martínez-Cañas, Luis Medina, Ana Mendieta, Tony Mendoza, Lydia Rubio, César Trasobares, Carmelita Tropicana
Radical Conventions is presented in collaboration with the Cuban Heritage Collection of the University of Miami Libraries. The exhibition is made possible due to generous support by the Knight Foundation, the National Endowment for the Arts, the Jorge M. Pérez Family Foundation, Funding Arts Network, American Alliance of Museums, Florida Department of State Division of Arts & Culture, Miami Dade County.
