Description

The development of Cuban geometric abstraction and the formation of Los Diez Pintores Concretos (Ten Concrete Painters) coincided with the radical cultural shifts that raged throughout the country in the 1950s. Against this backdrop, artists sought a new visual language in which abstract art could function as political and social practice. Concrete Cuba, produced on the occasion of the 2015-16 exhibition at David Zwirner, marks one of the first major presentations outside Cuba to focus on concretism in Cuba, and includes important works from the late 1940s through the early 1960s by the 12 artists who were associated with the group: Pedro Alvarez, Wifredo Arcay, Mario Carreno, Salvador Corratge, Sandu Darie, Luis Martinez Pedro, Alberto Menocal, Jose M. Mijares, Pedro de Oraa, Jose Angel Rosabal, Lolo Soldevilla and Rafael Soriano.
