Celebrated Cuban artist Luis Cruz Azaceta comes to Miami with a major exhibit that will occupy the entire gallery, and will include several works from his solo show “Swimming to Havana” presented at the New Orleans Museum of Art earlier this year. In the central piece of the exhibit “Hell Act” (2009) the artist ironically depicts a fleet of makeshift rafts aimlessly and helplessly bobbing around like toys in an enormous bath tub; the work illustrates the artist’s constant struggle with the isolation, loss, and inexorability of being an immigrant. Also included in the exhibit will be works like “Spill: Where is Superman when you need him” (2010) from his most recent series “Spill”. The piece touches on the inadequacies of human solutions and institutions in the face of catastrophe. There will also be sculptures, installations, and paintings from other recent periods included in the show.
