Broken LandscapeJune 23 - August 28, 2016
Richard Taittinger Gallery is honored to present Broken Landscape, the first major solo exhibition of Cuban artist, Jorge Mayet, in the United States. As an exile living in Mallorca, Spain, Mayet’s work distinctly reflects upon his origins and the disparate identities that define his homeland’s history.
An exhibition featuring a collection of Mayet’s sculptures, Broken Landscape, presents an anthology of remnants and collective memories; an interlacing of fleeting moments belonging to the artist and to the Cuban diaspora. As one of the most prominent Cuban contemporary artists, Mayet’s ability to invoke the consciousness and dysphoria of a people separated from their homeland renders these works both visually and emotionally powerful. His introspection is palpable.
