“Zilia Sánchez: Soy Isla”

February 16, 2019 - May 19, 2019


With a title that means “I am an island,” this is the first-ever museum show devoted to the work of Cuba-raised, Puerto Rico–based artist Zilia Sánchez. Born in Havana in the 1920s, she got her start designing sets for an anti-Batista theater group. But the pieces in this exhibit are less overtly political. Instead, they’re often subtly erotic, as with “Lunar con Tatuaje (Moon With Tattoo).”
