On October 11, with a preview, The Ringling State Art Museum of Florida presents an individual exhibition of the Cuban-American artist and writer Coco Fusco. Twilight, compiles a series of works made by the artist in relation to the Cuban political and social situation during the process of progressive disintegration of the revolution.
Between the most outstanding works in this exhibition they are La botella al mar de Maria Elena (2015) -video awarded in by the Göteborg International Biennial for Contemporary Art of Sweden-, a work that investigates the case of the Cuban poet María Elena Cruz Varela, who gathered a dozen intellectuals to demand political reforms; and The Empty Plaza /La Plaza Vacía (2012), where Fusco, inspired by the protests that emerged in the Middle East from 2011, makes an analysis of the different sites used by insurgents around the world.
