    NKAME:  A Retrospective of Cuban Printmaker Belkis Ayon (1967-1999)

    This landmark retrospective is the first in the U.S. dedicated to the work of Belkis Ayón (1967–1999)—the late Cuban visual artist who mined the founding myth of the Afro-Cuban fraternal society Abakuá to create an independent and powerful visual iconography. NKAME presents 47 prints that encompass a wide range of the artist’s graphic production from 1984 until her untimely passing in 1999. She is highly regarded for her signature technique of collography, and her deliberately austere palette of subtle black, white, and gray add drama and mystery to her narratives. Nkame was organized by the Belkis Ayón Estate, Havana, Cuba, and independent curator Cristina Vives along with the Fowler Museum at UCLA.
