Cuban American Art from the 1980’s.-

“A landmark exhibition, Radical Conventions is the first major museum presentation to focus solely on Cuban American art created during the 1980s. By exploring the heterogeneous nature of Cuban diasporic work from this pivotal decade, the show offers a critical counterpoint to an often binary, identity-focused narrative by framing the artists’ works more expansively within the aesthetic frameworks prevalent in the American avant-garde of the late 70s–80s and the era’s broader socio-economic, cultural, and political landscape. The exhibition features nearly 100 works by over 25 Cuban American artists representative of various generations including Luis Cruz Azaceta, Fernando García, Nereida García-Ferraz, Félix González-Torres, Tony Labat, María Martínez-Cañas, Luis Medina, Ana Mendieta, and Carmelita Tropicana.”
