Cuban Visions aims to present Cuban culture and reality through contemporary art that transcends political differences, updates cultural traditions, and deconstructs historical narratives to create new dialogue between prominent Cuban artists and Americans interested in a deeper understanding of Cuban life.
Cuban Visions will be the largest exhibition of contemporary Cuban art shown in New York City since the Museum of Modern Art’s Modern Cuban Painters exhibit of 1944.
Cuban Visions has invited 26 contemporary Cuban artists to be part of the exhibition and sale. There will be more than 50 works of art including photography, painting, installation, video, sculpture, engraving, and drawing.
Featured artists include: Juan Carlos Alom, Belkis Ayón, Luis Enrique Camejo, Raúl Cordero, Carlos Estévez, Antonio Eligio Fernández (Tonel), Adonis Flores, José Manuel Fors, José Emilio Fuentes, Aimee García, Rocío García, Glenda León, Reynier Leyva Novo, Jorge Luis Marrero, Cirenaica Moreira, René Peña, Marta María Pérez, Eduardo Ponjuan, Ángel Ramírez, Sandra Ramos, Fernando Rodríguez, René Francisco Rodríguez, Esterio Segura, José Ángel Toirac y Meira Marrero, and José Ángel Vincench.
