The walls of Miami Dade College’s (MDC) Museum of Art + Design (MOAD) will be filled with artistic designs created by one of Cuba’s most famed painters, Antonia Eiriz. The lifetime retrospective exhibition, A Painter and Her Audience, curated by Michelle Weinberg, will open the College’s fall season on Friday. Eiriz (1929-1995) developed a highly-personal style as a painter, boldly addressing themes such as the machinations of power, propaganda, and human suffering in a manner suffused with wry metaphors, irony, and dark humor. Her work was admired by – and highly influential – to a generation of Cuban artists in the 1960s, leaving a profound imprint on her many students in Cuba. The exhibition will also include works by contemporary Cuban and Cuban-American artists whose remembrances and influences of Eiriz testify to the continued relevance of her contributions as a painter. On display through November 17, admission is free. Museum hours are Wednesdays – Sundays from noon to 5 p.m.
