Calendar: Dialogues in Cuban Art

Event Description

Dialogues in Cuban Art is a two day symposium that explores the intellectual exchanges between Cuban and Cuban-American artists, curators and cultural workers from Havana and Miami. Some of the ideas guiding this convening will investigate emergent transnational relations between Cuban and Cuban American artists; explore an understanding of Cuban art beyond nation and diaspora; and address how opportunities for mutual understanding shape and inform cultural production. All three panel discussions will be simultaneously interpreted from English to Spanish.
