Maria Magdalena Campos-Pons: Everything is Separated by Water
María Magdalena Campos-Pons: Everything Is Separated by Water is the first full-scale survey of the artist’s career. The title, borrowed from one of her works, evokes at once the dangerous sea crossings faced by her enslaved ancestors from Africa and her Cuban contemporaries seeking greater freedom in America, and the sense of dislocation felt when physical and geopolitical barriers divide family and friends, past and future. Includes essays by former IMA curator Lisa D. Freiman and Okwui Enwezor. Hardcover: 183 pages. Dimensions: 10 x 12".
Everything is Separated by Water was on view at the Indianapolis Museum of Art from February 25, 2007 - June 3, 2007.
