Conde Contemporary Brings Little Havana to Art San Diego
Conde Contemporary, located at 1007 SW 8th St., in the Little Havana neighborhood of Miami, announced its inclusion at Art San Diego. “We’re delighted to participate in Art San Diego this year, with ‘A Tribute to Contemporary Cuban Art’. It’s our honor and privilege to introduce our coterie of Cuban artists to the Southern California audience of collectors”, said Stacy Conde, owner and director of the gallery. Contemporary Cuban Art is an amalgamation of history, politics, religion, culture and socioeconomic development, both on and off the island. Highly sought after in many circles, Cuban Contemporary Art can be found in important collections globally. Conde Contemporary specializes in Latin American contemporary art, with a focus on contemporary Cuban and Cuban American works, “However, country of origin is not our main criteria”, explains Conde. “We choose art which moves us, by artists with a proven record of commitment to their artistic endeavors.” The gallery will feature works by Ernesto Capdevila, Andres Conde, Darian Rodriguez Mederos, Aurora Molina and Luis Enrique Toledo del Rio. “Being Cuban means a great many things; there is no one Cuban point of view, neither within the group living in Cuba nor within the Cuban diaspora. We have specifically chosen work for Art San Diego, which is representative of the Cuban diversity in thought, style, subject and technique. The two main commonalities in the works we’ll show are that they’re all figurative, and the artists were born in Cuba”, said Ms. Conde.
