One of the most revered members of “the Miami Generation,” a group of Cuban-born artists who emigrated to the United States, María Brito is a painter, sculptor, and installation artist best known for her elaborately constructed room-like works that embody narratives of loss and displacement. Brito also draws on personal iconography to create challenging works that are at once deeply autobiographical and reflect a profound fluency with the history of Western art. In this new volume in the landmark A Ver series and the first major book on Brito’s career, Juan A. Martinez examines the unique interplay of the personal and the universal in this Miami-based artist’s diverse mixed-media works.

Book Description UCLA Chicano Studies Research Center, Los Angeles, 2009. Hardcover. Condition: New. No Jacket. A painter, sculptor, and installation artist, María Brito is best known for intricate mixed-media constructions that embody narratives of displacement and loss. A member of the Miami Generation, a group of Cuban-born Americans artists who emerged in the late 1970s, Brito employs a personal iconography inspired by her identity as a woman, a mother, a Cuban exile, a naturalized American, and a Catholic. Her works include large complex installations, self-portraits dense with symbolism, and clay sculptures that combine allegory and caricature in a wry critique of art, politics, and everyday life. Each is an autobiographical statement situated within the artist¿s profound fluency in the history of Western art. Juan A. Martínez, who focuses on Brito¿s unique interplay of the personal and the universal, highlights her as an artist who challenges cultural, social, and artistic barriers. "This richly illustrated study elucidates the allegorical power of Brito¿s artworks as relentless visual interrogations of modernity¿s contradictions. Martínez moves fluidly through sensitive historical analyses of her exile from Cuba, her artistic formation in Miami, and her sophisticated appropriation of popular Catholic iconography and domestic materials. Brito¿s works provoke us into an inquiry into the nature of human subjectivity." -Robin Adele Greeley, Art History and Latin American Studies, University of Connecticut "In María Brito, Juan Martínez presents a lucid consideration of one of the foremost artists of the Cuban-American experience. Through careful analysis of her installations, sculptures, and paintings, Martínez reveals the longing for identity and what he defines as ¿a will to allegory.¿ The prose is refreshingly clear, as is the author¿s respect not only for the artist but also for the works of art in and of themselves." -Alejandro Anreus, Art History and Latin American/Latino Studies, William Paterson University.
