Reality as Suspicion

Art On Cuba - - Index - DAVID MATEO

When our al­le­goric re­sources hav­ing to do with in­di­vid­u­al­so­ci­ety har­mo­niza­tion seemed to be ex­hausted, in the nineties women artis­tic pro­duc­tion be­gan to de­velop an en­tire process of ren­o­va­tion of the topic within plas­tic arts, with em­pha­sis in those rep­re­sen­ta­tional ap­proaches hav­ing to do with no­tions of iden­tity and com­mit­ment, in­ter­per­sonal di­a­logue and gen­der eq­uity, and para­dox­i­cal con­nec­tions be­tween reality and the sub­con­scious.

Re­flect­ing on the sub­ject from the sub­ject it­self, start­ing from ex­pec­ta­tions and states of an­noy­ance, fa­cil­i­tat­ing free ac­cess to a scarcely ap­proached tes­ti­mo­nial source as that com­ing from the fa­mil­iar do­mes­tic scene and es­tab­lish­ing new mo­tives of anal­ogy be­tween pub­lic and pri­vate be­hav­iors, have been some of the es­sen­tial con­tri­bu­tions to this phe­nom­e­non. They have been con­sol­i­dat­ing with the in­cor­po­ra­tion of new gen­er­a­tions formed at the San Ale­jan­dro Academy and the Higher Art In­sti­tute, and have reached such a tran­scen­dence that it would not be ex­ag­ger­ated to say that the ma­chin­ery of con­cep­tual art in Cuba is to­day be­ing col­lated by women artists.
