Hoy en Times Square

The Durst Organization and Bernardo Navarro are proud to present "7 FROM CUBA" featuring seven contemporary Cuban artists. The show is on exhibit from July 28 - August 31, 2010 at the Conde Nast Building, 4 Times Square, New York, NY. A reception for the artists will be held on Wednesday, August 25th from 6-8pm and is open to the public.

In the current exhibition, seven artists from the island display a variety of conceptual approaches with diverse impacts. Alejandro Aguilera approaches the concerns of a society with strong religious iconography where Ana Albertinas' adopts a surrealist approach as does Zaida del Rio with her vision of a forest paradise. Lourdes Porrata, evoking Kafka's "Metamorphosis", presents the experience of a population that has been mutating for survival. Carlos Rodriguez Cardenas' works portray the dream of a better material future. Fernando Garcia portrays the past as better times and like Augustin Bejerano, is concerned with the wound caused by the passing of time and the wait for a better future.

There is a potent symbolism in much of this work and the archetypes they evoke tend to stay with one. This is not the folk art of an isolated people, but rather a sophisticated expression well within contemporary art practice.
