Muestra de Agustín Fernández en Washington, D.C.

Agustín Fernández: Ultimate Surrealist

an exhibition curated by Donald Kuspit

Agustín Fernández  (1928-2006) 
is remembered as a master of modern Cuban art. 
His surrealist oeuvre is characterized by 
the coincidence of opposites. 

According to the organizers, his work "is most recognizable 
by ambiguous and precariously balanced forms, erotic overtones, 
surreal juxtapositions, and metallic palette. Inspired by the demands 
of survival in an urban environment and the mundane objects that 
clutter its alleys and streets."

Agustín Fernández: Ultimate Surrealist
January 25 - March 16, 2014
Katzen Arts Center
American University
Washington, D.C.

Opening reception on Saturday, January 25th from 6:00 - 9:00 PM.
