Cesar Santos’s Skillfully-Painted Pastiches Reference Art History Cuban-American artist Cesar Santos modernizes academic art styles and techniques through witty compositions that juxtapose elements directly borrowed from canonical art pieces with his own, contemporary imagery. His work raises questions about the ways meaning changes over time. Through bizarre fusions, including a memorable rendition of Manet’s Le Déjeuner sur l’herbe with a hint of McDonald’s burgers and fries, Santos aspires to bring clashing worlds into a disparate communion. “In a suggestive and theatrical manner,” he says, “I seek to raise questions, to entice one to probe the imagery that I present, and attempt to decipher its meaning.” By doing so, he encourages the viewers to compare different aesthetics and, in turn, cultural periods in history. Santos’s technique also plays a big part in what he tries to achieve with the aesthetics and concepts of his art.

The following 21 shows will debut at some of the biggest art institutions in the United States, and a few small ones too. 1. Sixteen performance artists working in pairs and shifts take part in a previous staging of "One Million Years." Also on view: Monir Shahroudy Farmanfarmaian: Infinite Possibility, Alberto Burri: The Trauma of Painting 2. 3.
