Maria Magdalena Campos-Pons, artist
Maria Magdalena Campos-Pons is an artist who is very interested in the Diaspora of African descendants, as she herself was born in the Matanzas province of Cuba but now lives and works in the United States. Campos-Pons bears a familial history that is deeply intermingled with the sugar industryĺs presence in her hometown of La Vega. Her work is an open-ended and continually evolving investigation of history and memory, and their roles in the formation of identity.
