Straight from Cuba: A Woman's Perspective May 14th, 2016 – July 10th, 2016
Opening reception Saturday, May 14th, 6-9pm
Last year’s widely acclaimed "Straight from Cuba" exhibition at the Lois Lambert Gallery showcased three male Cuban artists. Beginning May 14th, and continuing through July 10th, the Gallery will present a follow-up exhibition including the works of six female Cuban artists titled “Straight from Cuba: A Woman’s Perspective.” This group exhibition features work by Alicia de la Campa Pak, Laura Carralero Morales, Belsy Cobiellas Cruz, Lisandra Isabel Garcia, and Adislen Reyes Pino.
Each artist's work reflects Cuba’s current cultural and political concerns, social dynamics and gender issues. Female artists are challenging the meaning of "feminine", by exploring the stereotypical attributes so often applied to them.
