The Bronx Museum in New York presents an exploration of Cuban art that looks at how artists have grappled with issues of identity, community, and the urban experience.
“Wild Noise/Ruido Salvaje” is an exploration of contemporary Cuban art from the 1970s to the present that looks at how Cuban artists both on the island and abroad have grappled with issues of identity, community, and the urban experience.
Bringing together over 60 works by more than 30 artists from the Bronx Museum collection and other U.S. institutions and private collections, the exhibition will feature many artworks that will be publicly exhibited for the first time, including a newly commissioned sculpture and Humberto Díaz as the culmination of a three-month residency at the Bronx Museum.
“Art opens new dimensions and offers us different possibilities. This is the spirit behind ‘Wild Noise/Ruido Salvaje’, an exchange between two museums located in countries with well-known historical differences”, said Corina Matamoros, the Curator of Contemporary Cuban Art at the MNBA. “Over the past five years, we came to know each other personally and professionally, sharing a great amount of knowledge about artworks, artists, and education programs within our respective institutions, as well as assessing the various ways we collect contemporary art.”
