Revealing complexities on--and off--the island, Cuba Is explores aspects of Cuba not easily accessed by foreigners--and sometimes not even by Cubans themselves.

About

Born from indigenous, African and European roots, divergent politics and limitations in communication and commerce, the Cuba seen in this exhibition goes beyond the folklore and offers new insight into its current reality. Over 120 photos feature subjects ranging from defiant youth known as “Freakies” to the hard-partying children of the 1%, the underground system of sharing digital content - “El paquete” – to Miami’s Chonga girls.

Cuba Is also includes archival images and work done on assignment by four photographers: Elliot Erwitt, Leysis Quesada, Raúl Cañibano, and Tria Giovan, along with an original documentary, produced by the Annenberg Foundation, highlighting these photographers at work. A virtual reality experience will bring the viewers directly into Cuba’s current and dynamic music scene.
