Press Release


The Ringling is organizing a solo exhibition presenting recent video projects by internationally-acclaimed writer and interdisciplinary artist Coco Fusco. This show, Twilight,  presents works exploring the current political and social climate in Cuba as the Revolution enters its twilight years. Works presented in the Monda Gallery for Contemporary Art will be La botella al mar de María Elena (2015); La confesión (2015); and The Empty Plaza/La Plaza Vacia (2012). Fusco will be premiering her latest video project currently in production. This project, made possible by her 2016 Greenfield commission at the Hermitage Artist Retreat, is a short video-essay on contemporary Cuba that reflects on the anxieties emerging as the country faces an uncertain future. As part of Twilight, Fusco will also be unveiling a new sculpture on The Ringling’s grounds. This interactive sculpture, Tin Man of the Twenty-First Century (2018), offers the artist’s satirical commentary on contemporary US politics.
