Vienna

“Cuba—Cuba—Cuba: Maps of Desire”

Kunsthalle Wien Museumsquartier
Museumsplatz 1
March 19–May 30, 1999

The title says it all. Co-organized by Eugenio Valdés Figueroa of Havana and Austria’s Gerald Matt, this exhibition capitalizes on the current international vogue for Cuba and on the talent of its artists, both émigrés and those who’ve remained. Among the ten to be included here are Abigaíl González, Kcho, Marta María Péez Bravo, Tania Bruguera, and Félix González Torres. The seventy-odd works (videos, photographs, installations, and performance pieces) brought together in Vienna are to be organized thematically. The catalogue includes critical essays on Cuban art, cinema, music, and literature, as well as interviews with each of the artists in the show. Mar. 19–May 30.
