PINTA Opens. Close to 50 galleries and dealers will be on hand tonight for the gala preview of this weekend’s PINTA New York art fair—including three from Cuba. Visitors will want to keep an eye out for Habana Gallery, Acacia Gallery, and Cuban Art Projects—and for Subasta Habana director Luis Miret, who’s in New York this week for the fair. (Look for him at the Habana Gallery booth.) PINTA New York runs through Sunday, November 13.

Azaceta Watercolors. From PINTA, on Manhattan’s West 34th Street, it’s a short jump to the George Adams Gallery in Chelsea, where a gemlike selection of watercolors by Luis Cruz Azaceta is on view in the Drawing Room. The eight works in Self Portraits: Watercolors and Drawings 1977-1981 range from mildly sinister to fanciful, including Self-Portrait Throwing the Devil Out (1981) and Self-Portrait: Spitting Bullets (1981). Through December 23.

Novoa in Atlanta. In his new show at the Saltworks Gallery in Atlanta, GA, Glexis Novoa turns his keen metaphorical eye toward the waning influence of centralized political systems and dehumanizing technologies of war, all done with a masterful touch. Glexis Novoa: Drones takes its title from a signature work depicting an unmanned aerial vehicle, or drone, used by U.S. forces in Afghanistan. The show opens tomorrow evening, November 11, 7-10 p.m., and runs through January 7.

U.S. Premiere for Vincench in Miami. He’s had exhibitions in several other countries, but Vincench vs. Vincench: A Dissident Dialogue from Cuba is José Angel Vincench’s first solo show in the U.S. On view at Artspace/Virginia Miller Galleries of Coral Gables, the exhibition features more than 150 works from two new series. The starting point for the “Dissident” series is the definition of ‘dissent,’ which is stencilled, each in a different language, over large-scale abstract paintings. The “Exile” series includes paintings of brick ‘houses’ that can be grouped together to form the word ‘Exile.’ The show runs through January.

Latin Grammys Tonight. Thirteen Cuban musicians and groups are going for the Grammys this evening, from Omara Portuondo, la reina of the Buena Vista Social Club, to Paquito D’Rivera, the rapper Pitbull, the group Alex, Jorge, and Lena, and Adalberto Álvarez, el caballero del son (the gentleman of son). You can watch the awards ceremony live, and cheer Team Cuba on to victory, on Univision, beginning at 8 p.m. (7 p.m. Central Time). Tune in an hour earlier for the “Noche de Estrellas” to catch celebrities on the red carpet. Or get a jump on things with Latin Grammys en Vivo, on starting at 1:30 this afternoon.
