Spoken Softly with Mama, 1997

Afro-Cuban artist María Magdalena Campos-Pons' »Spoken Softly with Mama«, part of a series of works entitled »History of People who were not Heroes«, explores a plethora of issues to Diaspora, expatriation, gender, and race.

In this multi-media installation, she meditates, using a personal narrative to explore ways in which history and tradition are passed from generation to generation and collective memory is preserved in everyday objects.
