José Bedia, Júbilo de Aponte, 2017. Mixed media on mixed papers, 106 x 143 in.

 

December 8, 2017 – January 20, 2018
Visionary Aponte: Art and Black Freedom is a two part exhibition that features historical material and works by fifteen contemporary artists who respond to José Antonio Aponte’s lost Book of Paintings. Aponte, a Cuban freedom fighter, executed in Havana in 1812, was forced to describe each of its pictures during his trial. To spark new awareness of Aponte’s complex life and art, each artist evokes Aponte’s trial testimony in new work – paintings, drawings, sculpture, video, mixed media and textiles – that engages how Aponte’s portrayals of an array of subjects – Biblical scenes, landscapes and episodes in the history of Africa, Europe and the Americas.
 
Additional venues are the King Juan Carlos I Center at New York University (February 21 – June 30, 2018) and The Forum for Scholars and Publics at Duke University (Fall 2018).
