2. Richard Colman’s Faces, Figures, Places, & Things at Chandra Gallery
3. In Chromatic Aporias Rafael Lopez-Ramos includes realistic renderings of tropical fruits paraphrasing the gaze of colonial Art; the syncretism of Afro-Cuban religious symbols and Catholic images; and the Revolution’s propaganda iconography.
