Fowler Outspoken Talk: Beth Rosenblum on Cuban Art of the 1990s
November 16, 2016 | 7:00PM - 9:00PM
Belkis Ayón found her independent artistic voice in the late 1980s and early 1990s, a time of great change in Cuban history following the dissolution of the Soviet Union and, by extension, the termination of subsidies to Cuba. The 1990s in Cuba, however, were marked not only by an economic crisis but also by a rebirth of artistic production and increased foreign investment and tourism. In this talk, art historian Beth Rosenblum chronicles the Cuban cultural landscape that produced a number of artists who rose to international acclaim.
