María Magdalena Campos Pons
The Boston-based Afro-Cuban artist María Magdalena Campos-Pons has pioneered a distinctive aesthetic melding photography, performance, video, sound, and sculpture. Her work has largely addressed autobiographical issues, such as her relationship with her mother and with Cuba, motherhood, family, exile, and, the sugar industry and slave trade in Matanzas, her hometown. She is descended from Nigerian/Yoruban, Chinese, and Hispanic ancestors, and her work is infused with the spiritual traditions of her multiethnic heritage.
