Join us for the launch of our 2015 Spring Exhibition, curated by Alejandro de la Fuente.

Drapetomanía: Grupo Antillano and the Art of Afro-Cuba

A forgotten visual arts and cultural movement that thrived briefly between 1978 and 1983, Grupo Antillano articulated a vision of Cuban culture that privileged the importance of Africa and Afro-Caribbean influences in the formation of the Cuban nation. The art of Grupo Antillano belongs to a long tradition of Caribbean resistance and cultural cimarronaje, a tradition that lives on in the work of the younger contemporary artists who also participate in this exhibit.

This event is co-sponsored by the Cooper Gallery and the ARTS@David Rockefeller Center for Latin American Studies.
