A report from Cuban Art News.
In Miami Beach, the Sagamore Hotel is hosting this survey of art by the 80s Generation. Curated by Willy Castellanos and Adriana Herrera of Aluna Curatorial Collective with Sebastien Laboreau of the Sagamore Hotel, The Prodigious Decade features the work of more than 20 artists—most of them children during the Revolution, or born soon after.
Featured artists include José Manuel Fors, Juan Sí González, Consuelo Castañeda, Ana Albertina Delgado, Tonel, and Rubén Torres Llorca, among others.
The art that this generation produced tended to undermine official narratives and iconography of political power. Taking a frequently playful approach, they drew on popular culture, international art movements, and Afro-Cuban rituals.
The Prodigious Decade runs through August 31 at the Sagamore Hotel in Miami Beach.
