ArtTable Florida is honored to announce the Florida Chapter’s artist talk with Maria Martinez-Cañas, sponsored by the Pollock Krasner Foundation. This talk will take place over delicious breakfast at Fortress Storage, Miami. Beginning in New York, these intimate breakfasts feature leading figures in the visual arts in discussion with curators, academics, and critics. 

MARIA MARTINEZ-CAÑAS was born in Havana, Cuba. She received a B.F.A. in Photography from the Philadelphia College of Art and an M.F.A. in Photography from The School of The Art Institute of Chicago. An artist who works with innovative, non-traditional photographic media, she has exhibited extensively in the United States and abroad, with 47 one-person exhibitions and over 300 group exhibitions. She is the recipient of a Pollock-Krasner Foundation 2016 Photography Fellowship, a Civitella Ranieri Foundation Visual Arts Fellowship, a Cintas Fellowship; a National Endowment for the Arts award; and a Fulbright-Hays Grant, among others. Her works are included in the permanent collections of The Philadelphia Museum of Art, Philadelphia; The Museum of Modern Art in New York; the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art in San Francisco; The Center for Creative Photography in Tucson, Arizona; the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago and the National Museum of American Art, Smithsonian Institution in Washington, DC; among others. She lives and works in Miami since 1986.

ArtTable’s artist talk series began with the ongoing artist breakfast series in New York, which features high-profile artists, often in conversation with curators, scholars or writers. Since its inception in 2002, the breakfasts have brought together 4,300 women and have featured more than 160 women artists, raising the visibility of a group that continues to be underrepresented in museum or gallery exhibitions. This year the Pollock Krasner Foundation provided funding to expand the series outside of New York, to support ArtTable artist conversations in Washington DC, Miami, San Francisco, Seattle and Los Angeles. This year we’ve heard from Ilana Harris-Babou, Dana Schutz, Nona Faustine, and Mildred Howard.
