As an artist, José Ángel Toirac is known for critical re-readings of history and how it is constructed through images. This weekend, he was awarded Cuba’s highest honor for a visual artist.
The first shows of the new season include a panoramic look at the art of Carlos Estévez, an exploration of one of Rafael Soriano’s most compelling themes, and an intimately scaled retrospective of Wifredo Lam in a new Manhattan gallery space. Plus abstract art in Miami, an upcoming Zilia Sánchez show in Washington, DC, and the return of “one of the most deliriously beautiful films ever made.”
Followers of contemporary Cuban art got a holiday surprise when, on Christmas Day, the French art-market website Artprice posted an “Art Market Insight” feature about Cuban art.
