ART EXHIBIT, February 18 – March 7

TRANSITIONS
A Snapshot of Contemporary Cuban & Cuban-American Art

February 18 – March 7
This month-long art exhibition features some of the most relevant Cuban and Cuban-American artists working today, and is anchored by two large-scale works from the acclaimed Brooklyn-based artist Emilio Perez. His two pieces—the diptych dreaming out of season and the monumental 40-foot-long abstract work Footprints on the Ceiling—employ Perez’s signature technique of applying paint, building layer upon layer, and then “drawing” into the painting with a blade. Transitions also features La Isla (The Island)
and Diaspora by Leslie Sardinias, whose work was recently the focus of a solo show at The 8th Floor gallery, as well as a variety of two-dimensional works by Glenda Leòn, Alexandre Arrechea, and Roberto Diago, courtesy of Magnan Metz Gallery. The video art wall in City Center’s central lobby displays pieces by Glenda Leòn and Alexandre Arrechea, also courtesy of Magnan Metz Gallery.
