Aguas Malas features new work by New York-based Cuban artist Leslie Sardinias. Through his mixed media works, Sardinias creates an imagined world located within the 90-mile expanse between Cuba and the United States, and pays tribute to those who traveled those troubled waters and risk everything in pursuit of a better future. The exhibition is also a poetic tribute to the sea, simultaneously an archetype of hope and opportunity, as well as isolation and despair.
