Occupying, Building, Thinking: Poetic and Discursive Perspectives on Contemporary Cuban Video Art (1990-2010)
June 7 – August 3, 2013

This exhibition of videos by Cuban artists working worldwide invites contemplation of what it means to occupy (a home, a plot of land, a city, a society…) and the relationship between occupying and building and the concept of the work of art in today’s global culture. Three interconnected segments pose the question of how to reinvent a language for imagining what is public, private and intimate in a culture like Cuba’s, where civil society has been supplanted by the State. Concept and Video Curation by Dennys Matos; Exhibition Curated by Noel Smith; Environment by Vanessa Diaz; Organized by USFCAM.

Paul Robinson: Form of Absence x-rays | paintings | reliquaries
June 7 – August 3, 2013

Main Entry, Jože Ple?nik House & Atelier, Ljubljana, Slovenia. Paul Robinson
Paul O. Robinson is an artist and architect living and teaching in Ljubljana, Slovenia, whose research concerns transformative methods of representation using artifactual and indexial sources. Form of Absence references the work of the Slovene architect Jože Pležnik, known for his abstracted classical forms built in Prague, Vienna and throughout Slovenia. The exhibition proposes that the accessible evidence found in the aftermath of occupation is not always what it seems.
