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.

Gustavo Acosta, Carlos Estevez, Gory, Ruben Torres-Llorca in Made in Miami, at Pan American Art Projects, Miami

February 14-April 19, 2014

Pan American Art Projects
2450 NW 2nd Avenue
Miami, FL 33127

Pan American Art Projects is very pleased to announce our next exhibition, Made in Miami. Since the insertion of Art Basel Miami Beach in 2002 the city has become a hub for contemporary art, resulting in a huge influx of artists and galleries here in the past ten years. This interest in art has also extended to the creation of several new institutions such as the Frost Museum at the Florida International University, and more recently the Perez Art Museum Miami.

The artists in this exhibition are Gustavo Acosta, Edouard Duval-Carrié, Carlos Estévez and Carolina Sardi; they all call Miami home and have been based in the city through its evolution into a cultural hub. They all came to Miami from abroad (Carolina Sardi from Argentina, Gustavo Acosta and Carlos Estevez from Cuba and Edouard Duval Carrie from Haiti) and had already reached international acclaim before settling here which is a testament to the draw that Miami has with its rich cultural panorama.
