Lecture: “The Island Allure of Cuba” (1858-1958)


Instituto Cervantes [Cervantes Institute] presents “Glamour Cubano: The Island Allure of Cuba” a lecture (in Spanish) by Ramiro A. Fernández, on Thursday, January 26, 2017, at 7:00pm. [General admission cost is $10 for non-members and free for ICNY and CCCNY members.] The Cervantes Institute is located at 211 East 49th Street, New York, New York.

Description: An illustrated talk by Ramiro A. Fernández, featuring gems from his intensely personal collection of Cuba, amassed with professional expertise, visual insight and a decidedly cinematic flair. Through hundreds of magnificently preserved vintage photographs and ephemera, “Island Allure” will celebrate the culture of high style that prevailed in the island from colonial times through 1958 -from the earliest 19th century daguerreotypes to shots of Havana’s glamorous heyday. This unique display of photographs, some of which will be shown in public for the first time, will represent a century of Cuba’s history.
