Dagoberto Rodríguez presents Inner War

The Atlantic Center for Modern Art presents the exhibition ‘Inner War’ by the Cuban artist Dagoberto Rodríguez, a project curated by the Chilean specialist Andrea Pacheco González.

The exhibition remains open to the public from June 12 to November 8, 2020 at CAAM’s headquarters, during the Center’s regular hours, from Tuesday to Saturday, from 10 a.m. at 9 p.m., and on Sundays from 10 a.m. at 2 p.m.

 

CAAM receives the first individual exhibition in a Spanish institution of one of the great Cuban artists of the turn of the century. Dagoberto Rodríguez, founder and former member of the dissolved collective Los Carpinteros, presents a series of works that mark the beginning of a new stage in his artistic career, which begins in the early 1990s in Havana. Shocked by the recent Syrian war, the artist begins a thorough investigation of the conflict that the Islamic State is carrying out across the region and the ways in which the local population has been seeking to attack and defend against its enemy.

 

The exhibition project also incorporates a selection of works from the “Emblemas” series, reflecting most of the North American automobiles considered classic and associating them with the 12 most quoted words of the Cuban Revolution. They are emblems that form a set of graphic works of undeniable aesthetic appeal that approach as a metaphor for the relationship between the United States and revolutionary Cuba, a particular interpretation of logos of vehicle brands that continue to circulate in your country today.
