Tempestades solares / Grettel J. Singer


Mid-Manhattan Library

Grettel J. Singer
presenta charla sobre su novela


MODERADO POR JACQUELINE LOSS

Tempestades solares es un relato de exilios. Amalia escapa de la Habana con su familia y desde ese momento comienza un tránsito por distintas tierras, tiempos, cuerpos y geografías de lo interior, en un intento por encontrar su pertenencia desde la extranjería. Amelia experimenta los múltiples deseos de la carne, sufre la relación intempestiva con su padre, huye, siempre hacia delante, hasta que en un punto decide regresar y ver si es posible recolectar los pedazos de sí misma.

"Un libro inteligente y sensual sobre la condición femenina. Con un registro amplio, que va de la nostalgia a la provocación, siempre con un delicioso sentido del humor."
- Beach Phantom

Piensa en Mi / Natalia LaFourcade & Vicentico

New York State of Mind No.41 / The Gustavo Valdes Collection

Rodriguez Calero / “Piensa en mi,” an acrollage on canvas from 1999 is part of The Gustavo Valdes Collection.
New York based artist Rodriguez Calero is a very relevant presence in The Gustavo Valdes Collection. Her work has been included in the collection for close to two decades now. Rodriguez Calero is one of the most important Latina artists working in New York. El Museo del Barrio presents Rodriguez Calero’s first major museum exhibition of her robust corpus of work. As part of the museum’s Women Artists Retrospective Series, the exhibition titled RODRIGUEZ CALERO: URBAN MARTYRS AND LATTER DAY SANTOS includes acrollage (a technique developed by Rodriguez Calero) canvases, smaller collages, and fotacrolés (altered photography) on canvas board, as well as works of mixed media on paper. The exhibition is accompanied by a scholarly catalogue with a main essay by the exhibition curator, Dr. Alejandro Anreus.
