‘Segmented Realities’ presents a group of five paintings and ten sculptural paintings by José Parlá suggesting cultural fragments salvaged from urban sites that have experienced social and cultural upheaval and transformation. As do segments of walls in Havana, New York, London, or the Berlin wall, Parlá’s sculptures bear witness to waves of history that seem to be inscribed on their surfaces, told in an expressive and poetic language of the city. These works act as palimpsests, surfaces bearing layers of marks, on which ensuing generations might imagine their own manifestos and declarations of selfhood.
