The artists selected for this exhibition are all Cuban-born but work in different parts of the American continent. Some were trained in the famed San Alejandro’s Academy in Havana, while others pursued their artistic endeavors first in the United States. Although some of the selected works still carry tangible nostalgic tension, most deviate from conventional political parameters and blend into a worldly, or even otherworldly visual narrative that is enchanting, serene, powerful, agitating, introspective and/or playful. The works chosen for this exhibition are meant to please and provoke transculturally and without discrimination.
