Panel Discussion: Cuba’s Social and Cultural Life, and Book Signing

Sunday, March 17, 3 p.m.

Join us for a discussion inspired by the work of Cuban artist Pedro Pablo Oliva, whose fantastical and provocative paintings and sculptures address multiple aspects of Cuban life during the last half-century, from utopian zeal and delusions to power politics, moral contradictions, social turmoil, migratory crisis or the figure of Communist revolutionary Fidel Castro, among others.

Panelists include David Horta, Curator and specialist on Oliva’s work; Lillian Guerra, UF Professor of Cuban & Caribbean History; and Raul Villarreal, Visual Artist-Author and Coordinator for Cultural Programs, Santa Fe College.

A book signing with artist Pedro Pablo Oliva will follow. The exhibition The Art of Pedro Pablo Oliva is on view March 2 – July 7.
