Pérez and Fuego in NYC. Sandra Levinson of Cuban Art Space writes that William Pérez and Marlys Fuego—the subjects of the gallery’s current exhibition, Convivencia—have been enjoying their time in New York. “William and Marlys have been exploring the city—this is William’s third visit, Marlys’ first,” writes Levinson. “They’ve been walking the Highline [the elevated railway park in Chelsea], checking out the Apple store in the Village, and meeting with old friends and collectors of their work. At MoMA, they were moved by seeing the Wifredo Lam, the Amelia Peláez, and the work of another artist of Cuban origin, Francis Picabia.” Convivencia runs through November 19.
