Visionary Aponte: Art and Black Freedom

 

Visionary Aponte: Art and Black Freedom considers an extraordinary—now lost— “Book of Paintings” by José Antonio Aponte, a free black carpenter, artist, and former soldier who led an ambitious antislavery conspiracy in Cuba. During his 1812 trial, Aponte was forced to describe each picture in the book. Fifteen contemporary artists have reimagined Aponte’s lost art for today, inviting us to think about the role of art and history in shaping social and political change.

 

Auxiliary programming will include:

VIP Vernissage Brunch*: Friday, December 8, 10am-12pm (*Admission by Invitation / Art Basel VIP)

Artist Roundtable: Friday, December 8, 12-2pm
