Nader Art Museum Latin America¬†proudly presents¬†Latin American Art – Visions of Identity.

Nader Art Museum Latin America is pleased to present the exhibition Latin American Art РVisions of Identity. On view at Nader Art Museum Latin America from October 18 through November 30, 2019.
The purpose of this exhibition is to showcase the statement of individual artistic approaches to produce works moved by the interest of constructing a self-image and a representation of identity. The position in which each artist behaves in the world as an individual, their views about art and the illustration of their cultural backgrounds, contrary to the perception of a homogenous cultural ethnicity recognized by the establishment.
The exhibition overviews the misrepresentation and stereotypes of Latin American art through the contribution of well-known artists such as Lam and Matta to the development and history of modern and contemporary art. When looking to the work and life of these artists and others within Latin America and beyond, absorbing influences from places where they have practiced their art while responding to the forces of the local art environment that makes their artistic discourse universal.
Latin American is vast and speaks multiple languages, each having a unique social and cultural backgrounds containing a diverse landscape and peoples. Any effort to understand diversity and identity must embrace such multidimensional multiplicity of experiences.
Featuring works from the Nader Art Museum Latin America collection.

Combat Hippies: Words vs. War
Friday, October 4, 7
What does a painting about war convey? How differently is it experienced by someone who has served in the military?¬†For The Wolfsonian’s Performance Month, the veterans of Combat Hippies invite us into a¬†spoken-word poetry session¬†as they “talk back” to art. Witness their deeply personal take, muse on the layered meanings contained in war-related images, and draw inspiration from the masters to form your own thoughtful response.

Shot clandestinely in Cuba, “Irene in Havana” is the story of a Spanish young rebel who travels to the island in search of answers and gets disillusioned knowing the reality of the Castro dictatorship.

The 30-minute short film revolves around a moving love story framed in the tragic process that Cubans over 60 years, have been living since the painful experience of exile.

Directed by prestigious filmmaker Lilo Vilaplana, with screenplay by journalist Juan Manuel Cao, the short film is played by Irene D√≠az, in her debut as an actress, and Ariel Texid√≥, one of Cuba’s and Latin America’s favorite actors in both television and cinema. Both accompanied by a stellar cast that brings together legendary career figures such as Mar√≠a Teresa Rojas, Sandra P√©rez, Carlos Cruz and Luis Felipe Bagos.

Vilaplana said that directing this script highly excited him with the challenge of filming in Cuba, as well as by touching on the subject of a massacre, distorted for over half a century by Castro’s propaganda. “Castrism should be denounced, due to its 60 years of impunity, and it is our responsibility to transgress, not keeping quiet and go on the offensive,” added Vilaplana. “The politicians must know that the island belongs to us, the Cubans and that we will recover it.”

For his part, Cao said that the conception of this script was a challenge. It was, nothing less than the first story about the shootings revealed in all the history of Cuban cinema. “And also,” noted Cao, “it’s a love story.”

For Irene D√≠az, filming in Havana and Miami was a transformative experience. “Participating in this project meant leaving the comfort zone, experimenting in an unknown area, breaking the routine,” said the young protagonist, a journalist by profession. “I can say that, in some respects, the character could have been I before moving to live in Miami.”

This production, marks a milestone in film and television industry of the United States, was conducted by Carlos Vasallo, Emilio Braun, Miguel Cossío and Marcell Felipe. The clandestine filming in Havana was a huge technical and logistical effort carried out by an experienced technical team who challenged the ferocious controls imposed by the Cuban authorities.

Vasallo, President of America CV Network, commented that this production reaffirms Am√©rica TeV√©’s commitment with the history of the Cuban exile and the South Florida community.

“We are proud to produce this short film, which marks a milestone in the Cuban filmography,” noted Mr. Vasallo. “We risk filming clandestinely in Cuba and where we are gathering the fruits of our efforts with unique work that excels both in direction and performance showing that when you strive you can obtain anything you work for.”

America CV Network’s VP, Emilio Braun, pointed out that this short film kicks off a new effort in the company. “We will start producing much more content with this type of format that are very attractive focusing on specific niches that viewers are looking for,” added Braun.

The film will premiere on Tuesday, November 27th at 8 p.m. at the Manuel Artime Theater in Little Havana at 900 SW 1 Street, Miami, 33130. Free admission in order of arrival. 800 person capacity.

Desde ser una celebridad en Internet a ocupar los primeros lugares de las listas, la carrera musical de Cardi B se catapult√≥ a niveles nunca antes vistos en la industria de la m√ļsica. Ella irrumpi√≥ en el a√Īo 2017, cuando se convirti√≥ en el tercer acto art√≠stico y primera rapera en toda la historia en ubicar simult√°neamente, sus primeras tres entradas a la lista Billboard Hot 100, dentro de los primeros 10, uni√©ndose a The Beatles y Ashanti en el logro de esta proeza.

En los a√Īos siguientes, el apareci√≥ en m√°s lanzamientos con Migos, como Yung Rich Nation (2015), Culture (2017), y Culture II (2018).
