Trip to Cuba

The Gibbes Museum of Art screens the award-winning documentary, Alumbrones. Set in Cuba, the feature follows the daily lives of 12 artist as they maneuver through their ever changing home. From the frequent blackouts, family, supply shortages, and emotionally charged artwork, Cuba is seen through twelve distinctly unique lenses. The Gibbes’ decision to screen this film coincides with their current exhibition, Pan American Modernism: Avant-Garde Art in Latin America and the United States. The exhibition displays over 70 works of art, including that of 16 Cuban artists, each reaffirming the significance and impact of Latin American artists in the modernism movement. The film and exhibition will not only give a “broader context for the Cuban work,” but present the diversity of technique among modernism as well.
