Cuban artist Jose Fors: A deft command of metaphor and material

In his first show here in more than a decade, Havana-based artist Jose Manuel Fors strikes a powerful, plangent note. A wall-length installation, several sculptures and a group of collages all use photographs that Fors has made or found, cut into tiny tiles less than an inch per side.

Memory is Fors' ultimate material, and his command of its double-edged elusiveness and palpability is exquisite.
