Matando el tiempo

Killing Time, curated by Elvis Fuentes, Yuneikys Villalonga, and Glexis Novoa, focuses on the work of over seventy contemporary Cuban artists that have approached the subject of time. “The Revolution has been a symbolic intervention on Cuban Time. In return, time has shaped discourses of and on the Cuban Revolution,” said curators. Time patterns: Rewriting History, Productive Journey vs. Free Time: From Diversion to Subversion, and Aging and Decaying: An Archaeology of Utopia, are some of many subjects explored in different media, including performances, installations, photographs, videos, drawings, paintings, sculpture, murals, prints and ephemera. This exhibition spans from late 1970s to the present, and provides a timely context for Cuban artists whose work has had little or no exposure in the United States. Many of these artists have metaphorically recorded some of the tensions in the cultural, social and political landscape of the past three decades, and have often been dismissed by the official discourse on the Island or stereotyped by narrow conceptions of identity. A special section of the exhibition features the origins of Performance and Conceptual art in Cuba, through original works and documentation materials never before shown in the United States. In addition to the exhibition, this show will include extensive public programming and a catalogue.
