From Africa to the Americas

Afro-Cuban Works from the Frost Collection

  • October 16, 2013 - January 05, 2014

Summary of Exhibition

Afro-Cuban works from the Frost collection highlight the rich symbolic legacy of the syncretism and rituals born of traditional Yoruba religion and Catholicism in Cuba.

Further Information about the Exhibition

The works, selected from our African and Cuban collections, introduce the origins of Santería and Palo Monte and their manifestation in the art of twentieth and twenty-first century artists, including Wifredo Lam, José Bedia, and Carlos Alfonzo.

Their vast and poetic interpretation of the world, the cosmos, and the inter-relationship of man and nature brings the heritage of Africa into the present.
