MSA XPERIMENTAL reminds us of the exhibition “Outsider Artists from Havana,” which is on view at the Patricia & Phillip Frost Art Museum at Florida International University in Miami, Florida, until June 17, 2018. This exhibition, curated by Claudia Taboada in collaboration with the National Art Exhibitions of the Mentally Ill Foundation [NAEMI], includes the artistic production of two of the most recognized Cuban artists in the genre of #outsiderart: Misleidys Castillo and Jorge Alberto Hernández Cadi (El Buzo).
Description: Outsider Artists from Havana is a project managed by the National Art Exhibitions of the Mentally Ill Foundation, in close collaboration with specialists from the Frost Art Museum and FIU researchers, which aims to show the artistic production of two of the most recognized Cuban artists in the genre of outsider art: Misleidys Castillo and Jorge Alberto Hernández Cadi (El Buzo).
Each artist presents very different aesthetics and themes, according to their respective mental disorders. The interpretation of their special universes is shaped consistently with the recurrence of a distinctive language that is supported by their craft, which is an important concept that unites them.
