Historias Mezcaldas – Eduin Fraga – Mixed Stories

September 12 – December 9, 2022

Experience the powerful storytelling of these immersive and biographical collage-paintings that reflect the dignity, humanity, and creativity of regular people in both Cuba and beyond. Reflect on the tensions between lived realities and hegemonic narratives that are explored through the works’ dynamic images, compelling narratives, and collective memories. Share in the complex lives and tangible experiences detailed in remarkably unembellished depictions of our contemporary realities.

Art asks us to – Experience. Reflect. Share.


About the Artist: Eduin Fraga was born in Havana, Cuba in 1974. He began painting over twenty years ago, blending newspaper collage and paint on canvas in order to capture dynamic fragments of society within the piece. Fraga considers his technique of painting and newspaper collage to be a unique mechanism through which to add complexity and richness to the work while simultaneously transforming it into a form of historical register of social experience. Fraga formally studied painting and drawing at the Experimental Center of Visual Arts in Havana and graduated in 2012. He has been invited to present his work in galleries and universities within the US and in Cuba. Some of his works are part of the Northwestern Mutual Insurance’s Giving Gallery, a 2018 exhibit that focuses on philanthropic partnerships in Milwaukee, WI. Fraga currently divides his time between Cuba and the United States.
