Pedro Alvarez: The Signs Pile Up (Hardcover Exhibition Catalogue)
This is the first comprehensive book to survey the paintings of Pedro Alvarez. In the U.S., the norm for both books and exhibitions that deal with artists from other regions is to present surveys, which has been the case for Cuban artists who established themselves in the 1990s, during what is called the Special Period, or Periodo Especial. In this light, it is a delight that the University of California, Riversides Sweeney Art Gallery has the opportunity to co-publish with Smart Art Press on of the few monographs on one of the rising stars in Cuba from the 1990s.
