Visionary Aponte: Art and Black Freedom

Overview

Show Full Overview Hide Full Overview

Visionary Aponte: Art and Black Freedom takes as its point of departure an extraordinary—and now lost—historical artifact: a so-called “Book of Paintings.” Its creator was José Antonio Aponte, a free black carpenter, artist,and former soldier who was also the leader of an ambitious antislavery conspiracy in Cuba in 1812. During his trial, Aponte was forced to provide testimony describing each of the pictures in his book. They portrayed a wide array of subject matter, from Biblical scenes to landscapes to episodes in the history of Africa, Europe, and the Americas. Using those descriptions, fourteen contemporary artists have reimagined Aponte’s book for our present, inviting us to think about the role of art and history in making social change.

Curated by: Édouard Duval Carrié and Ada Ferrer, with Laurent Dubois, Tosha Grantham, and Linda Rodríguez

Global/Borderless Caribbean XII: Focus Miami presents Contemporary Visual Expression, Local Global, and Dèjá Vu 

Contemporary Visual Expression, featuring an outdoor exhibition curated by Edouard Duval-Carrié, will celebrate Global/Borderless Caribbean’s 12 years of programming. The aim with this exhibition is not just to show that these islands all have artists worthy of appellation but more so to underline the universality of their “regional” visions.

Local Global, curated by Marie Vickles will focus on Miami as a central point of geographic interest and confluence in the Global South.  This exhibition and performance program, Pèfòmans Fanm, will feature a selection of Miami-based artists that represent the multiplicity of Afro-diasporic histories and nationalities, which define our region and connect it to the Caribbean.

Dèjá Vu, curated by Carl Juste, is a collection of artworks gathered over 15 years that are re-examined in broader context of their original intent. As if brought together by precognition, these pieces from various exhibitions together forge a state of immersion while pulling on emotions and senses relived through the present state before.

Dèjá Vu: indoor exhibition at IPC ArtSpace
