Rubén Torres-Llorca, José Bedia, Cruz Azaceta, González-Torres, Ana Mendieta, Sandra Ramos, Carlos Rodríguez Cárdenas, among Cuban artists included in “A to Z of Caribbean Art”, an anthology of artists of the Caribbean

Robert & Christopher Publishers, a Trinidad-based art book imprint, has published an anthology of important artists from the Caribbean, including Cuban artists from the diaspora.

A to Z of Caribbean Art is a joyous celebration of the lives and works of many of the most outstanding, prolific, groundbreaking, critical, fascinating, and controversial artists of the Caribbean. Thanks to the abécédaire format of this book, a multiplicity of artists have ended up in lively dialogue here. We connect people separated by geography, language, and time: 120 years of movements, moments, schools, and sociopolitical contexts; countries as far apart as Bermuda in the north to Guyana in the south; and the French, Dutch, English, and Spanish Caribbean.

Each artist is represented by a page that shows a definitive work, biographical details, and a short write-up about their oeuvre. These artists were selected based on a number of factors, including critical discourse around their work, inclusion in a significant publication, work written about in regional or international trade magazine, and participation in a curated exhibition at a major institution, or at a regional or international biennial.

JOSÉ BEDIA: Recurrencia del animal solitario, at Fundación Iturria, Montevideo, Uruguay

December 2013 – February 2014

FUNDACIÓN ITURRIA
Schroeder 6514 – Montevideo

Artists’ Colony “Rosario Oriental” –
Rosario, Colonia Uruguay

http://iturria.com.uy/fundacion-turria/

JOSÉ BEDIA (Havana, 1959) began his artistic education in 1972 at the Escuela de Bellas Artes San Alejandro, and graduated from Havana’s Instituto Superior de Arte in 1981. He represented Cuba in important Biennales, and his art is all over the world in the best museums and international galleries. He has also travelled around the world, with special interest in the Afro and Amerindian cultures, investigating in the least contacted areas of Perú, México, Kenya, Uganda, Congo and Angola, among many other destinations.

….

On this occasion, his travels take him to Uruguay, a country that doesn’t share much with his usual destinations: Uruguay hosts no jungles, native tribes or primitive rituals, nor great mountains or vast deserts.  Instead, it is known for its moderation in every sense of the word: geographical, climatic, social, cultural, political and economical, and certainly doesn’t seem, at first sight, as a profitable trip for the art of Bedia.
