Made in Cuba: Recycling Memory and Culture, Part II

Every Fri., Sat., and Sun. from Nov. 18-Jan. 14
12-5 p.m.
Art, Galleries

In 1991, the Center for Cuban Studies in New York City spearheaded a lawsuit against the U.S. Treasury Department to reverse the U.S. government’s treatment of original art coming from Cuba as an illegal import. They won. This exhibition, which parallels the Walker Art Center’s “Adios Utopia,” highlights more than 70 Cuban artists whose works (unlike those at the Walker) can be purchased. Many pieces are mashups of politics and pop culture, all through a distinctly Cuban sensibility that is at once provocative and poignant. The range of styles and media is scintillating. In addition to photography and posters, there are paintings, prints, folk art, sculpture, ceramics, and clothing. The opening will be a take on Havana’s Fábrica del Arte Cubano (Cuban Art Factory), with music, movies, snacks, and drinks from 3 to 11 p.m. Saturday, November 18.
