Nashville, Tennessee.- The Vanderbilt University Fine Arts Gallery is pleased to announce the opening of “Maria Magdalena Campos-Pons—Mama/Reciprocal Energy”, on view from October 13th through December 8th. María Magdalena Campos-Pons is one of the most significant artists to emerge from the Cuban post-revolutionary era. While installation art, performance art, photography, and cultural activism continue to define the core of Campos-Pons’ work of the last two decades, this exhibition will be the first that almost exclusively highlights her drawings. The drawings found within the Vanderbilt exhibition are a direct reflection of the artist’s exploration of themes central to her practice, such as issues of identity, exile, and displacement as an Afro-Cuban artist living in America.
