Afro-Cuban Artists: A Renaissance

Tuesday, February 23, 2016 - 9:00am to Sunday, May 1, 2016 - 4:00pm
Mizzou North, Second Floor Galleries

Afro-Cuban Artists postcardThis special exhibition focuses on two of the most celebrated Cuban artists working today, Manuel Mendive and Eduardo “Choco” Roca Salazar. Both men draw inspiration from their Afro-Cuban heritage. However, their choices of different subject matter and divergent styles underscore the manifold ways revolution and race continue to be interpreted and understood in Cuba. A collaboration between Kristin Schwain (Associate Professor of American Art) and Juanamaría Cordones-Cook (Catherine Paine Middlebush Professor of Romance Languages), this exhibition is the centerpiece of an international conference to be held at the University of Missouri–Columbia from April 27–30, 2016.
