El Museo Del Barrio is pleased to host this landmark retrospective the first in the U.S. dedicated to the work of Belkis Ayon (1967-1999), the late Cuban visual artist who mined the founding myth of the Afro-Cuban fraternal society Abakua to create an independent and powerful visual iconography. For a black Cuban woman both her rise in the contemporary printmaking world and her investigation of a powerful all-male brotherhood were notable and bold. NKAME, a sweeping overview of her most fertile period of artistic creativity.
