An exhibition of ceramics from one of the most highly
regarded ceramic artists who is represented in major
national and private collections worldwide. Magdalene
Odundo has achieved international recognition for her
beautifully restrained ceramic forms. She brings together
the art of sculpture and the craft of pottery to create
striking ceramic vessels whose resonances range from

Marsden Hartley: American Modern brings to Gainesville
the single largest collection of Hartley's work dating
from 1908 through 1941. Hartley, one of the most
famous early American modernists, belonged to a
group surrounding photographer and art dealer Alfred
Stieglitz and his New York galleries. For the first 40 years
of his life, Hartley pursued the ideals and philosophical
-.j -.. ,principles of American
S ,transcendentalism. He
Believed art's true function
was to provide an arena for
spiritual exploration and
fulfillment rather than an
illusionistic rendering of the
physical world. To this end,
he developed a unique style
and range of techniques that
S gave physical expression to
S spiritual forces and feelings. .
Marsden Hartley: American Modern is organized by the
Frederick R. Weisman Art Museum at the University of
Minnesota, Minneapolis and is supported by funds from
the National Endowment for the Arts. Made possible
locally by the AEC Trust. -il g

The exhibition consists of 59 artworks created primarily
between the 1980s and early 2000s by 40 Cuban-born
artists. Among the artists represented in the exhibition
are many internationally renowned figures such as Jos6
Bedia, Antonio Fernandez (Tonel), Los Carpinteros,
Tania Bruguera, Carlos Garaicoa, Alexis Leyva (KCHO),
Luis Cruz Azaceta, Magdalena Campos Pons and Elsa
Mora. Approximately half of the artists currently reside
in Cuba, while the other half reside outside Cuba in
countries like Spain, Mexico and the United States.
The artworks in the exhibition encompass a broad
range of media, including paintings, drawings, prints,
photographs, sculptures and mixed-media installations.
Collectively, the works represent the combination
of utopian impulses and dystopian realities and the
ruptures and new beginnings that characterize Cuban
art. The exhibition is accompanied by a bi-lingual
(English and Spanish) color catalogue that includes
essays by Harn Curator of Contemporary Art, Kerry
Oliver-Smith; Abelardo Mena, curator of contemporary
art at the National Museum in Havana; and Magda
Gonzalez Mora, independent Cuban curator.

Ham Museum exhibitions and programs are made possible by privately funded
endowments, the Harn Alliance, Business and Professional Friends and sponsored
in part by the State of Florida, Department of State, Division of Cultural Affairs, the
Florida Arts Council, and the National Endowment for the Arts.
