Wifredo Lam and the Great Cuban extended
Due to overwhelming response the exhibition Wifredo Lam and the Great Cuban has been extended until August 31, 2014.
The exhibition is open at Gary Nader Art Centre from Monday to Saturday 10am to 6pm and admission is free to the public.
“Using as a bridge and leitmotiv the top figure of Wifredo Lam (1902-1982), stated Janet Batet writer, curator and art critic, the exhibition is a journey through the history of Cuban art. It is no accident that it is the very particular world of Lam who takes us by the hand through this fascinating journey. “Lam is the most iconic figure of Cuban art,” explained Gary Nader. “His scope is worldwide”.
“Without attempting a chronological logic that would scratch in the monotony, the exhibition happily weaves pieces of different generations and styles in a nice polyphony of Cuban art voices. Along with the works of Mario Carreño, Peláez, Angel Acosta León, René Portocarrero, Mariano Rodriguez and Rafael Soriano, are the works of Carlos Alfonzo, José Bedia, Pedro Alvarez, Luis Cruz Azaceta, Julio Larraz, Los Carpinteros, Armando Mariño, Rubén Torres Llorca and Carlos Quintana stimulating in the receptor interesting counterpoints and unexpected analogies,” continued Janet Batet.
The exhibition consists of over 150 important artworks showcasing the historical richness, development, and excellence of Cuban art throughout the works of its most representative authors, their technical skills, variety of themes, concepts and forms that built a solid and remarkable image of Cuban art worldwide.
Wifredo Lam and the Great Cubans encloses works by Abela, Acosta León, Alfonzo, Pedro Alvarez, Hernan Bas, José Bedia, Cundo Bermúdez, Agustín Cárdenas, Carreño, Luis Cruz Azaceta, Carlos Enríquez, Agustín Fernández, Gay Garcia, Alexis Leyva Machado (Kcho), Lam, Larraz, Victor Manuel, Armando Mariño, Manuel Mendive, Peláez Ponce, Portocarrero, Carlos Quintana, Mariano Rodriguez, Tomas Sanchez, and Ruben Torres Llorca Soriano.
