Ends in 42 days

Over the last fifty years, Cuban artist Manuel Mendive has developed a sophisticated and pointed examination of the influence of African oral-based traditions on Cuba through the experimental lens of contemporary art. His multidisciplinary work, in particular performances, has become a vehicle for exploring the intersections between art, religion, philosophy, politics, ethics, and anthropology. At the Bronx Museum, Mendive will present a new body of works focused on his continued visual interpretation of narratives of Yorùbá-Lucumí culture and wisdom literature, extending to the universal ideas and relationships between humans and nature.

Conceived as a cohesive group of paintings and sculptures, the overall installation suggests a passage to the heart of all living things. Steeped in ancient African wisdom and modern philosophical constructs, Mendive’s artworks invite the viewer to be immersed in a universal search for identity and interconnectedness.
