Art Presentation
As part of the WOMAN IN THE ARTS programs, the Kendall Art Center is presenting at the Women in art lecture series. The lecture looks at women in art, the struggles they face and how they overcome them. The ethics of feminism, collectivism, equality and working art extend from these early groups into women’s activities in the following decades. Highlighting the tremendous diversity in the Miami Metro area, this lecture explores the vibrant artistic energy of women artists from many cultural backgrounds who have been collected by Cuban-born American businessman Leonardo Rodriguez and his family.

Art Presentation
As part of the WOMAN IN THE ARTS programs, Kendall Art Center presents: Pubic Manifesto, a feminist action featuring political and cultural dimensions that the Cuba-born artist based in Costa Rica, Aimée Joaristi, has carried out in several cities around the world. Devised drawing on the dramaturgy of the performance, it ended up expanding its boundaries and becoming a de facto cultural gesture of protest, affirmation and empowerment of the female voice.

Art Presentation
As part of the WOMAN IN THE ARTS programs, Kendall Art Center presents: Poems, An Art Presentation with the idea of expanding the presence of female artists in the collection. "By the date of March, several proposals to complement the celebrations of International Women’s Day were planned: a personal exhibition by the young artist Lisyanet Rodríguez (1987) and a tribute to Gina Pellón (1926-2014), in a conversation with the creators Ivonne Ferrer (1968), Ana María Sarlat (1959) and Laura Luna (1959). At the same time, the Kendall Art Center (KAC) considered the idea - for the new space - to establish an intergenerational dialogue between different artists with a common artistic background."
Moderated by Gabriela García Azcuy.

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.
