ArtPalmBeach Collector Lecture Series: A Conversation with Jose Bedia on his Works, his Travels and on Collecting Art
Presented by Bonnie Clearwater, Director and Chief Curator of the NSU Art Museum of Fort Lauderdale and artist Jose Bedia
This year’s ArtPalmBeach Visionary honoree will be engaging in a lecture led by Bonnie Clearwater. Together, Bedia and Clearwater will trace the methods, inspirations and sentiments behind his prized works, the experiences and travels that informed them, and the state of collecting today.
The extraordinary artistic legacy of Jose Bedia goes beyond the contributions of the Cuban and Latin American modernist vanguard, of crossing and merging movements and styles between the western and peripheral artistic experiences. Bedia’s contemporaneity incorporates a multitude of cultural influences, each enclosing upon the other in multiple developments of power, loss, and production. Bedia is not only a Miami artist. While he is an American of Cuban origin, he is universal in his symbolism, as his works address the complex processes of human exchange and the linguistic, economic, racial, gendered, religious and cultural factors involved in these exchanges. At this year’s ArtPalmBeach, Bedia will be honored as the 2018 Visionary Award Winner, Trotta Bono Contemporary, New York will be presenting a one man show exhibiting an new collection of works that are sure to inspire.
