“The Abyss of the Ocean lays bare the multiple Diasporic identities of Cuban women while confronting racist and colonialist stereotypes of their bodies.”
– Aldeide Delgado, Curator

This exhibition reveals the experiences and strategies of survival of María Magdalena Campos-Pons, Coco Fusco, Marta María Pérez Bravo, Gertrudis Rivalta, and Juana Valdés within the matrix of Latinx Art.

“The complexity of racial, ethnic and cultural identity within the African Diaspora, and navigating the “isms” that come with it, is all connected to internalized colonization and white supremacy… The challenge of the perceptions of being Black, Latina and a woman in society, yesterday and today, is why we are presenting this exhibition.”
– Melody Capote, CCCADI Executive Director
