Cuba Connection: Contemporary Cuban and Cuban-American Art

DATE
Sat, Apr 6, 2013
TIME
6:00pm - 8:00pm

Octavia Art Gallery is pleased to present Cuba Connection, an exhibition featuring painting, photography, prints, and mixed media works by Cuban and Cuban-American artists. These artists – José Antonio Choy, Piki Mendizabal, Luisa Mesa, Karlos Perez, Alex Hernández Dueñas, Rubén Alpízar, Victoria Montoro Zamorano, and others – bring together a variety of styles and experiences. Although stylistically disparate, each work in this exhibition has a strong connection to Cuba in aesthetics, heritage or concept. As a whole, they provide a glimpse of contemporary artistic production amongst Cuban and Cuban-American artists, as well as a reflection on the personal position of artists living on the island and abroad.
