Frist Art Museum Announces On the Horizon: Contemporary Cuban Art from the Pérez Art Museum Miami

The Frist Art Museum presents On the Horizon: Contemporary Cuban Art from the Pérez Art Museum Miami, an exhibition exploring the diverse cultural and political landscapes of Cuba and its diaspora through paintings, photographs, sculptures, videos, and installations by fifty artists. Drawn from one of the largest public collections of Cuban art in the United States, On the Horizon will be on view from January 28 through May 1, 2022.

Featuring approximately seventy works by Cuban artists of multiple generations, the exhibition inspires dialogue regarding the physical, social, and political landscape of the island and its diaspora. Artists include Yoan Capote, Los Carpinteros, Teresita Fernández, Enrique Martinez-Celaya, and Zilia Sánchez. Vanderbilt University art professor María Magdalena Campos-Pons, who won the prestigious Pérez Prize from the Pérez Art Museum Miami in 2021 in honor of her powerful explorations of history, race, and culture, has two large triptychs in the exhibition.
