Agustin Fernandez (1928-2006) is recognized as one of the outstanding Cuban artists of his generation. This symposium aims to provide analytical perspectives on the work of this artist and its significance. Each panelist will provide analyses and interpretations of the unique and discerning artistic vision that Fernandez cultivated by bridging his Cuban inheritance and the cosmopolitan influences gleaned from many decades spent abroad. They will also present varying vantage points for appreciating the historical and contemporary significance of Fernandez’s oeuvre with the larger aim of placing Fernandez’s work in dialogue with an international cohort of artists working along similar lines. Finally Professor Edward J. Sullivan, the panel discussant, will comment and extend on the analyses and views presented.
