The Rodriguez collection at MoCAA collection offers outstanding works from Cuban contemporary art to engage the mind and spirit. Paintings, sculptures, photographs, drawings, and ceramics, among others, are lively conversations that occur through creativity across time, place, and culture.
The Rodriguez Art Collection, on extended loan to the MoCAA becomes an invitation to our audiences to investigate its relationship to creativity. But we also want to share our inquiries into contemporary art as it discloses the unwritten rules, active networks, and continuing myths of the rapidly expanding territory of art collecting.
A good art collection is always much more than the sum of its parts, especially with contemporary work. Art collector Leonardo Rodriguez takes us on a cross-continental journey through a life-long journey in the field of art. By lifting the veil on a culture that emerges as diverse, adventurous, nuanced, and meaningful as Cuban art.
The MoCAA collection is envisioned as a space for research, inquiry, training, exchanges, and community education. A vital component of the Museum program, The Rodriguez Collection motivates a cultural enterprise to educate through art. To provide a broader vision of Cuban modern and contemporary art to present and future generations. We wish to give our audiences the chance to delve deeper into the history and practice of art in a welcoming, pleasant new museum space.
The Kendall Art Cultural Center (KACC), dedicated the past six years to the preservation and promotion of contemporary art and artists, and to the exchange of art and ideas throughout Miami and South Florida, as well as abroad. Through an energetic calendar of exhibitions, programs, and its collections, KACC provides an international platform for the work of established and emerging artists, advancing public appreciation and understanding of contemporary art.
The Rodríguez collection is a blueprint of Cuban art and its diaspora. Within the context of the new MoCA-Americas the collection becomes an invaluable visual source for Diaspora identity. It represents a different approach to art history to try to better understand where we come from to better know where we are heading.Read More
