Juan Roberto Diago is a leading member of the new Afro-Cuban cultural movement, which has …denounced the persistence of racism and discrimination in Cuban society. This exhibition of twenty-five mixed-media and installation artworks traces Diago’s vibrant career from the mid-1990s, when he began to construct a revisionist history of the Cuban nation from the experience of a person of African descent. It is a history of enslavement and cultural loss, but also of resilience and recovery, the kind of history that is required in this Afro-Cuban present.
Co-sponsored by the Cuban Studies Program, David Rockefeller Center for Latin American Studies. More information at drclas.harvard.edu/events/juan-roberto-diago-spring-exhibition.
