Apertura: Photography in Cuba Today


  • Chazen Museum of Art

Apertura: Photography in Cuba Today explores how photography is used, understood, and experienced in Cuba in times of transition through photographs, photography-based installations, digital photomontage and "intervened photography" by eight contemporary Cuban artists. These show how Cuban photography has changed over the last 20 years. In contrast with the stylized documentary images of the young Revolution, the new Cuban photography aims to create a syntax of expressive artifacts.
