Lead Stories

- Ariel Orozco

In his work, Cuban artist Ariel Orozco proposes a shift in the way we look at and conceive of mundane events suggested with actions and objects. His proposal is to communicate the relationship between art and poetry. His investigations have resulted in a number of interventions in which public space has become the stage for his imagination. An article by Héctor Antón about the language of Orozco’s work, his interests, and the way in which he transforms his ideas into objects and works of art. Read the article





 

- The Age of Discrepancy. Art and Culture in Mexico 1968-1997

La era de la discrepancia (The Age of Discrepancy), a group exhibition presented at Mexico’s Museo Universitario de Ciencias y Artes, was organized in different museographic spaces, nine sections that pointed towards a possible genealogy of contemporary art in Mexico. Carlos Antonio de la Sierra comments on the curatorial work by Olivier Debroise, Pilar García de Germenos, Cuauhtémoc Medina and Alvaro Vázquez, and the various expressions present in each one of the show’s sections.Read the article


 



- Alberto Baraya. Reflections around fiction

Colombian artist Alberto Baraya connects his work with the idea of fiction. Relating art and fiction is not surprising in itself, but what is special in the case of this artist is the multiplicity of possibilities with which he makes the content of the word more complex. So says Ivonne Pini, who analyzes the specifics in Baraya’s work, his reflections, and the cultural relationships he establishes between man, objects, and nature. Read the review

Electronic Catalog

- Ofill Echevarria

We invite you to see the new Electronic Catalog for the Cuban artist, Ofill Echevarria. In reference to his own creation the artist has expressed: [To me]... a work of art is philosophical in its roots -it encodes the essence and thoughts, in their purest form, of those who bring it to life. My painting talks about a renaissance, where man once again becomes the center of all reflection and metaphor. By capturing the ephemeral images in our high-definition era, my work transports us to an environment that is purely human yet is governed by technology. See the catalog
