A Strange Isolation: Cuban Photography from an International Perspective
Wednesday, September 12, 7 pm
Main Building, New York University, Room 408 (enter at 31 Washington Place)
In a lecture, exhibition curator Tim B. Wride will discuss how—contrary to the common notion of Cuba as an island isolated from the rest of the art world—photo-based art produced in Cuba extends a rich domestic tradition while taking part in a broader international art dialogue. Taking the exhibition as a point of departure, he will trace the international roots, domestic hybrids, and contemporary manifestations of the interaction between artists using photography on and off the island.
