"MADE IN CUBA / HECHO EN CUBA: REYCLING MEMORY AND CULTURE, PART II"
NOVEMBER 18 --JANUARY 14, 2018
FEATURES 70 ARTISTS EXPLORING A WIDE RANGE OF THEMES AND DISCIPLINES, FROM THE POLITICAL TO THE SPIRITUAL TO AMERICAN POP CULTURE -- VIEWED FROM AFAR
The work includes photography and posters, folk art, paintings, drawings, prints, small sculpture, ceramics and wearable art, and themes that range from the vaguely political to spiritual to American pop culture, viewed afar from the Cuban nation, even though only 90 miles from the U.S mainland.
For the opening night, November 18 from 3 to 11 p.m., Squirrel Haus Arts will become a mini-version of Havana’s famed Fábrica del Arte Cubano (Cuban ArtFactory), with Cuban music and movies, snacks and drinks, as well as the many forms of art present throughout the show. This is a free event. The exhibit's regular hours will be 12 to 5 p.m. Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
Art Originates from Center for Cuban Studies in New York with Its Long Ties to Cuba and Its Artists. The abundant work stems from The Cuban Art Space of New York’s Center for Cuban Studies (CCS)*** and is curated by the CCS team of Sandra Levinson (a CCS founder), Bernardo Navarro and Juan Carlos Tamargo. Tamargo will be in Minneapolis to create the exhibit, and Levinson will be here for gallery talks.
"Made in Cuba! Recycling Memory and Culture, Part II will include some artists featured in a parallel Cuban Art show at Walker Art Center, "Adios Utopia" (November through March).
