Her recent solo exhibition at Alexander Gray Associates featured her new video work The Empty Plaza/La Plaza Vacia. Inspired by the organized public protests in the Middle East beginning in 2011, the artist took note of the communal spaces around the world being utilized and, in contrast, those left empty.The empty Plaza de la Revolución in Havana, Cuba becomes the protagonist in Fusco’s meditation on public space, revolutionary promise, and memory.
