BUZZART presents retrospective of Cuban master photographer JUAN CARLOS ALOM. October 11, 2012 – 7 PM
MIAMI,FLORIDA OCT 1, 2012 The Cuban Art Project- Wyndwood’s newest contemporary photography gallery resident, presents the work of Cuban master photographer Juan Carlos Alom with an opening reception on Thursday October 11, 2012 at 7 pm.
The retrospective show entitled “1989-2012 Fotografías de Juan Carlos Alom,” is the culmination of more than 20 years of work that features exclusive and unseen pieces with special emphasis on those created in 1989. In the artist’s statement he describes the show as “more than 50 black and white and color photographs that will take us on a wonderful and real-life journey to that unknown dimension that is Cuba.”
Alom is a one of Cuba’s most interesting and relevant photographers as well as an experimental filmmaker. His artistic career started in the 90′s in Havana and his photo work is part of many important institutions and private art collections including Fototeca de Cuba, Daros Latinamerica, The Bronx Museum of New York, The Art Institute of Chicago and the Ludwig Forum for International Art in Germany. His experimental film “Havana Solo,” has been widely shown. In 2000, Alom was selected by Time Magazine as one of the ten most relevant Latin American photographers of the millennium.
BUZZART’s program is a reflection of the interests and vision of a Spanish collective, who founded the gallery in 2012 with the objective of creating an artist-curated space focused on contemporary photography of emerging and acclaimed artists. Identifying the City as a strategic art hub with the yearly presence of Art Basel, BUZZART decided that this was the perfect place to present Latin American and Spanish photography with a fresh and young approach yet with a solid art background.
