Miami Dade College's Museum of Art + Design presents exhibition of photographs by Cristina García Rodero
Cristina García Rodero’s (Spanish, b. 1949) graphic series Rituales en Haití first debuted at the 2001 Venice Biennale in Venice, Italy.
MIAMI, FL.- Miami Dade College’s (MDC) Museum of Art + Design presents Rituales en Haití, an exhibition of photographs by Spanish-born photographer Cristina García Rodero, opening in conjunction with Art Basel Miami Beach 2013. Organized in partnership with Spanish Agency for International Development Cooperation (AECID), the Consulate General of Spain in Miami and Centro Cultural Español, the exhibition opened to the public on Wednesday, Dec. 4. Rituales en Haití is García Rodero’s first exhibition at the College’s flagship institution dedicated to the presentation and exhibition of visual art and design, housed at the National Historic Landmark Freedom Tower at Miami Dade College in Downtown Miami. The exhibition is free and open to the public.

Cristina García Rodero’s (Spanish, b. 1949) graphic series Rituales en Haití first debuted at the 2001 Venice Biennale in Venice, Italy. Her ground-breaking work and expansive career has documented the celebrated and mystified worlds within ritualistic ceremonies of Haiti, as well as festivals – religious or pagan – throughout Spain, India, Mediterranean Europe and the United States. For Rituales en Haití, García Rodero traveled to Haiti over a period of four years, where she documented voodoo rituals, producing a series of expressive portraits and moving scenes flanked by engaging documentary observations. The exhibition features more than 100 photographs on view and includes recent additions to the enigmatic series.

Rituales en Haití is the first major solo museum exhibition by the Magnum Photo and Vu Agency photographer in the United States, whose work has been included in exhibitions in venues throughout the world, including MoMA PS1, New York, N.Y.; Museo del Prado, Madrid; Venice Biennale, Venice, Italy; Guggenheim Museum, Bilbao, Spain; Bogota Museum of Modern Art, Bogota, Colombia; and Henri Cartier-Bresson Foundation, Paris. García Rodero’s extensive accolades include the prestigious W. Eugene Smith Memorial Fund award, and she was recently elected to the Royal Academy of Fine Arts of San Fernando, taking the chair of the great Spanish writer and film director, Luis Garcia Berlanga.

Rituales en Haití will be on display through March 29, 2014.
