EXHIBITION PREVIEW and RECEPTION
Friday, February 5, 7-10 pm
Cuba Avant-Garde: Contemporary Cuban Art from the Farber Collection
Large scale paintings, sculpture, drawings, photographs, and mixed media works highlight the cultural mixing, aesthetic diversity, and critical voice that reflect international contemporary art, but emerge from the distinct circumstances of Cuba itself. Forty Cuban born artists who live in and outside of Cuba use subtle devices of irony, metaphor, and ambiguity to challenge accepted artistic and political discourse, while employing a rich variety of experimental, conceptual, and postmodern strategies. A fully illustrated bilingual publication accompanies the exhibition. Organized by the Samuel P. Harn Museum of Art at the University of Florida and toured by Curatorial Assistance Traveling Exhibitions (CATE), Pasadena, California. Sponsored at the Lowe Art Museum by Howard Farber, Northwestern Mutual, HSBC Private Bank, and Baja Ferries.
Reception: 7-10 pm
