“¡Cuba, Cuba! 65 Years of Photography”—curated by Cuban art historian Iliana Cepero and ICP Curator Pauline Vermare—will be on view at the Southampton Arts Center from August 15 to September 7, 2015. The opening will take place on August 15 from 5:00-8:00pm. This event is free and open to the public. The Southampton Arts Center is located at 25 Jobs Lane, Southampton, NY.
Description: This momentous exhibition includes more than 100 color and black-and-white photographs made from the 1950s to the present. ¡Cuba, Cuba! features work by over 20 Cuban photographers including icons Alberto Korda, Raúl Corrales, and Marucha (María Eugenia Haya), and American masters such as Hamptonites Burt Glinn and Elliott Erwitt.
The vintage and contemporary works are drawn mainly from ICP’s collection, the archive of the Center for Cuban Studies, and Vicki Gold Levi’s Cuban collections, and include never-before-seen images and a unique collection of historic artifacts, political posters, and publications.
The opening will include Cuban-inspired food and cocktails and live music from Jazz at Lincoln Center.
