Temporary Contemporary: Bass Museum Redefines Street Art.

Briana Saati. “Temporary Contemporary: Bass Museum Redefines Street Art.”
Miami New Times, 7 Nov. 2012, Miami.

Excerpt:

…The piece deals with issues of art history and the way in which we perceive its subjects. “You go to a museum and see a white marble sculpture of an African woman and why is it white marble and why is there no name on it?…European American people have [their] proper names for titles,” Cubiñá said of the way historical artists named and gave valor to their original works. “He’s creating these; juxtaposing them in this conversation about art history…He did the research on who this African woman was and the work of art actually includes her full name…so he’s almost rewriting history,” Cubiñá said.
