Farside Gallery. Ana Albertina Delgado: Selected Drawings 1997 – 2011

From Jul 16 through Aug 28, 2011.

Ana Albertina Delgado engages in visual research focusing on the primary objectives of a woman’s history interconnecting different life stages and levels of social and cultural status. She chooses to present these sequences,

like a storybook with a cinematic perspective, in a way that might allow for the creation of a complex feminine viewpoint. She uses as a reference traditional oral country stories and myth, but also takes the contemporary city woman as a central character, using a narrative guided by ambiguous and sensual feminine elements for a dreamlike reflection on a woman’s daily life.

Today her works are included in such major collections as the Muse Nacional de Bellas Artes, Havana, Cuba, the Museum of Contemporary Art, North Miami, Florida, Museum of Art, Fort Lauderdale, Florida, Museum of Arts, Guadalajara University, Jalisco, Mexico, Frost Art Museum, Florida International University, Miami, Florida and The Lowe Art Museum, University of Miami, Miami, Florida.

Ana Albertina Delgado is a Cuban-born artist who currently lives and works in Miami. She completed her art studies at the Institutor Superior de Arte in Havana, Cuba, in 1988. Together with four other artists, she founded the art group known as Pure. Ana Albertina Delgado has had several solo exhibitions in the United States and abroad.
