Without Masks: Contemporary Afro-Cuban Art
May 2 – November 2, 2014
Audain Gallery, Museum of Anthropology
This exhibition features over 80 Afro-Cuban artworks collected by Chris and Marina von Christierson. Curated by Cuban poet, art critic and curator Orlando Hernández, the exhibition was first shown at the Johannesburg Art Gallery. It explores the ties that link the histories and cultures of Cuba and Africa, and includes works that reflect controversial and conflicting aspects of the Cuban national reality that continue to affect Cuban society today, including problems related to race, stereotypes and religion.
