Maria Magdalena Campos Pons to Lecture in Atlanta: March 20th, 7 p.m.

From the ACP e-newsletter:

“We’re pleased to bring Maria Magdalena Campos-Pons to the Spelman College Museum of Art for ACP’s Lecture Series, this Thursday, March 20th, at 7 p.m. A Cuban-American who works in photography, sculpture and mixed-media, Campos-Pons’ work is currently featured in Spelman’s “Cinema Remixed and Reloaded: Black Women Artists and the Moving Image Since 1970 Part II”, which is currently on view.

One of the most significant artists from post-Revolutionary Cuba, Campos-Pons’ work explores the role of history and memory in shaping identity. Her work created since leaving Cuba for North America in 1990 includes large-format Polaroid photographs and new media installations. Campos-Pons reconstructs both representations of individual and shared memories to grasp her imagined displacement from Africa, her actual exile from Cuba, and her experience as a black Cuban woman living in North America. Her personal experiences are used to exceed biography in order to articulate about the account of culture and history at large.

Campos-Pons has been featured in numerous group and solo exhibitions in the United States, Canada, Japan, Norway, France, Italy, and Cuba. Recently, Campos-Pons exhibited a mid-career survey at the Indianapolis Museum of Art. Her work has been featured at the Venice Biennale, Johannesburg Biennale, and the Museum of Modern Art, New York; Art Institute of Chicago; Whitney Museum of American Art; and Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.
