THE PAST OF THIS AFRO-CUBAN PRESENT
Roberto Diago expone en HarvardThe Pasts of this Afro-Cuban Present, curated by Alejandro De La Fuente, Director, Afro-Latin American Research Institute; Editor, Transition Magazine, at the Hutchins Center. 2 de febrero-5 mayo
Juan Roberto Diago is a leading member of the new Afro-Cuban cultural movement, which has valiantly 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.
