The Light in Cuban Eyes
Exhibition Dates: March 26 - May 23, 2015
Thursday, March 26
6:00 - 8:00 pm
The Light in Cuban Eyes, a group exhibition of contemporary Cuban photography, was inspired by long-time patron of Cuban photography, Madeleine P. Plonsker. It is the first New York show focused on work made during and after Cuba’s “Special Period,” the time of extreme hardship and poverty which followed the Soviet withdraw. Dynamic, gritty, and charged these works capture a beauty and decay that is uniquely Cuban.
The exhibition coincides with a book release of a text by the same name. It was published by Lake Forest College Press and organized by Plonsker. The show and the text will feature works by artists including Pedro Abascal, Pavel Acosta, Juan Carlos Alom, Jorge Luis Álvarez Pupo, Ramsés Batista, Raúl Cañibano, Arien Chang, Donis Dayán, Reinaldo Echemendía Cid, Adrián Fernández, Eduardo García, Alejandro González, Glenda León, Kadir López Nieves, José Julián Martí, Néstor Martí, Liudmila + Nelson, René Peña, Alejandro Pérez, Michel Pou, Leysis Quesada, Alfredo Ramos, and Lissette Solórzano. - Text adapted from Robert Mann Gallery Press Release.
