In 1998, the ASU Art Museum presented the first exhibition of contemporary art from Cuba organized by a U.S. museum, Contemporary Art from Cuba: Irony and Survival on the Utopian Island. Curated by the Museum’s director at the time, Marilyn Zeitlin, the exhibition focused on artists from the 1980s and 90s who would go on to become internationally renowned. Their work brought a renewed visual energy and incisive commentaries on Cuban history and contemporary reality, often accompanied by a compelling and dark sense of humor.
Marilyn Zeitlin, a well known contemporary art curator and Latin American art specialist, returns to the ASU Art Museum to give a gallery talk on Rhythm and History, the first reconsideration of the museum’s Cuban holdings in a decade, featuring a small selection of new acquisitions in dialogue with highlights from the original show.
This lecture is free and open to the public. Seating is limited; RSVPs are required.
