Cuban Art of the 1980s. The Reynardus Collection

November 29, 2018 - April 7, 2019

Cuban Art of the 1980s. The Reynardus Collection presents a selection of works from one of the most comprehensive private collections of contemporary Cuban art in the United States. Focusing on the artwork by Cuban artists who left the island after 1989, it represents a generation that changed the Island’s culture through its aesthetic practices. The majority of the works in the exhibition belong to artists who gained recognition at a young age and were instrumental in the development of Cuban art in the 1980s. Their stories, styles and experiences are all different but they share a common bond: they chose to live in exile. The collection also includes works by Cuban masters who influenced them and by artists born in Cuba who left early in their careers or became artists after migrating to the United States. The collection reflects the vision of Jorge Reynardus, a Cuban art lover who, like these artists, grew up in Cuba but left in search for safer and better opportunities. His collection serves as a testimony of a crucial time in Cuba’s art history, but also to what it means to have a passion for art and to live with it.
