Event Navigation

The Ringling is organizing a solo exhibition presenting recent video projects by internationally-acclaimed Cuban-American interdisciplinary artist Coco Fusco. This show, Twilight, presents works exploring the current political and social climate in Cuba as the Revolution enters its twilight years. Works presented in the Monda Gallery for Contemporary Art will be La botella al mar de María Elena (2015); La confesión (2015); and The Empty Plaza/La Plaza Vacia (2012). Fusco will be premiering her lasted video project Vivir en junio con la lengua afuera/To live in June with Your Tongue Hanging Out (2018). This newest project, made possible by her 2016 Greenfield Prize from the Hermitage Artist Retreat, is a short video-essay on contemporary poetry in Cuba that reflects on the anxieties emerging as the country faces an uncertain future. Fusco will also be unveiling a new sculpture on The Ringling’s grounds as part of the Twilight exhibition. This sculpture, Tin Man of the Twenty-First Century (2018), a collaboration with Chico MacMurtrie, offers the artist’s satirical commentary on contemporary US politics.
