By MoCA-Americas Team

In the Saturday, April 6, 2024 edition, the Nuevo Herald reviews the latest solo exhibition of renowned Cuban-American creator Pedro Hernández. Authored by art critic, curator, and essayist Dennys Matos Leyva, the article not only shares his insights on the curation and museography but also takes a brief journey through Hernández's output over the last decade, mirroring the exhibition itself. Matos also explores key elements crucial to the artist's development, such as his immigrant status, his medical background, and his initial artistic influences in the late 1950s.
