On the horizon

Aug 1, 2017 | Art & Chronicles, Featured


This exhibit explores the diverse cultural and emotional landscapes of the current Cuban art. It introduces a selection of pieces by contemporaneous Cuban artists, donated to the museum by Jorge M. Pérez. A collection of 170 works from a recent gift, and others that were donated to PAMM in 2012. The selection includes multiple images of the horizon that serve as a conceptual framework to the exhibit.

Those meanings given to the horizon make it a symbol of desire, restraint, or hope that shows up visually in the works.

These pieces of contemplative art, created by different artistic means such as picture, sculpture, drawing, video, or installation, lead to discuss the social, political, and physical environment of Cuba nowadays. The reality is seen through the experience of each artist and his or her aesthetic.

On the horizon presents three different but related “chapters” that will take place every three months.

The exhibit is structured on the metaphor of the horizon line. This element is in most of the pieces and reflects a strong vision of the art practices in Cuba during the last three decades, as well as the work of young unknown artists from the island and abroad.
