1999: Works by Luis Cruz Azaceta 

Luis Cruz Azaceta is a mystery man, a globally acclaimed artist with a low-key public profile. Born in Cuba 65 years ago, he has lived in New Orleans since 1992, after many years in New York, his adopted home after fleeing Havana as a teen. There he developed into an art star and leading exponent of a classically Cuban style that uses irony to plumb the depths of the exile experience and divine deeper meanings within the chaos. This 1999 expo reflects his take on a particularly charged and apprehensive period of time, the 12-month period leading up to the millennium. The 32 paintings, drawings, photographs, sculptures and assemblages in this show " his first CAC solo since 1993 " elaborate on his uniquely wary and perennially appalled, yet distinctly whimsical, worldview. — D. Eric Bookhardt Through June 28
