REVOLUTION NOT TELEVISED
Inspired by Gil Scott-Heron's famous song-poem from 1970 that detected a wave of cultural changes imperceptible to the mainstream, "revolution not televised" features works by contemporary Cuban artists.
Featured artists include: José Bedia, Tania Bruguera, Los Carpinteros, Carlos Garaicoa, Ana Mendieta, Sandra Ramos, and Esterio Segura Mora, among others.
The Bronx Museum of the Arts will present "revolution not televised," an exhibition featuring more than 35 works produced over four decades that together illuminate Cuba’s recent political and social development.
On view from July 19 through October 7, 2012, revolution not televised will present an overview of contemporary artistic practice in Cuba, featuring work by over 20 artists in a variety of media—including photography, film, and sculpture.
The exhibition will also highlight the Bronx Museum’s outstanding collection of work by Cuban artists who live on the island and abroad, including several recent acquisitions that have not been previously exhibited by the Museum.
"revolution not televised" continues the Bronx Museum’s 30-year history of researching, presenting, and collecting contemporary art from Cuba.
