University of Miami (Opens November 3)

Unconscious Thoughts traces the evolution of Cuban art from the early 1960s to the present, focusing exclusively on women artists. The work on view embraces a variety of mediums, from painting and photography to printmaking and mixed media. Responding to concerns felt by their makers as artists, women, and Cubans, the artworks explore personal and national identity, gender stereotyping, sexual norms, Cuban history, and religious and racial influences on the personal and cultural levels.

The cross-generational roster runs from Antonia Eiríz to Ana Mendieta, Belkis Ayón to Aimé García, Clara Morera to Elsa Mora. Other artists in the show include Sandra Ceballos, Sandra Ramos, Rocío García, Cirenaica Moreira, and María Magdalena Campos-Pons, among others. The show is curated by Sara Reisman, artistic director of the Shelley & Donald Rubin Foundation.
