Organized by the National Museum of Fine Arts and the Cuban Fund of Cultural Assets, the exhibition explores the relation between this creator and this institution that exhibits her work, which was founded six decades ago.
Fifty pieces make up the selection of Eiriz’s work, which reviews the thematic lines addressed in her work on paper, as well as the diversity of styles and techniques used, including inks, drawing and engraving.
According to a statement from the organizing institutions, the exhibition is an example of the artist’s interest in experimentation, as it alludes to her singular appropriation of grotesque expressionism and the new figuration.
Moreover, the text details specific moments in the life of the painter in her relationship with the Gallery, since its inauguration in 1962, as well as exhibitions that marked this intertwined history, including Reunion, which took place in January and February 1991.
Recognized as a space for the exhibition and legitimization of the most innovative and relevant contemporary Cuban visual arts, the gallery will host the new exhibition until August 31.
In her professional career, the painter participated in art biennials in Cuba, Japan, Chile, Brazil and Poland, and her paintings were exhibited in Spain, France, Mexico and the United States, the country where she died in 1995, at the age of 65.
