Juana Valdés: Terrestrial Bodies
Cuban Legacy Gallery at the FreedomTower.
Terrestrial Bodies draws on the artist’s personal experience of migration as an Afro-Cuban American. Incorporating early cartographies and mass-produced collectible ceramic objects—sourced by Valdes from around the world—the exhibition expands two-dimensional works into large installations that reflect on issues of globalization, free markets, and labor production, while questioning the history of colonization.
Kislak Center: Culture and Change in the Early Americas

Kislak Foundation and assembled over the course of many decades, the Kislak collection, considered one of the most important of its kind in the United States, includes some of the most significant original source materials related to the history of the early Americas.
