Cuban Artists: The Prodigious Decade

The Cuban Art Exhibit: The Prodigious Decade will feature 75 works from some of the most important artists who pioneered contemporary art on the island. The selection of artworks was created by artists "who were raised after the '59 revolution, and who mostly attended the Instituto Superior de Arte (ISA) school in Havana. These artists pushed the limits of what was permitted and prohibited at that time and thus emerged in tension with what the Revolution's authorities considered as their fundamental tenets, for the Revolution sought to forbid anything that might stand opposed to its core values. This selection of pioneers lives on and around the island's shores, allows the viewer to feel and experience the undeniable courage of a generation of innovators who made and continue to make works of art without any rules but their own."
