“Diago: The Pasts of This Afro-Cuban Present,” the United States’ first serious and systematic look at Cuba’s most prominent contemporary artist Juan Roberto Diago and his prolific body of work. 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 25 mixed-media and installation works 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.

Opening Reception February 1 at 6 pm.
