Occupying, Building, Thinking:
Poetic and Discursive Perspectives on
Contemporary Cuban Video Art (1990-2010)

June 7 – August 3, 2013
USF Contemporary Art Museum
West Gallery

This exhibition of videos by Cuban artists working worldwide invites contemplation of what it means to occupy (a home, a plot of land, a city, a society…) and the relationship between occupying and building and the concept of the work of art in today’s global culture. Three interconnected segments pose the question of how to reinvent a language for imagining what is public, private and intimate in a culture like Cuba’s, where civil society has been supplanted by the State. Concept and Video Curation by Dennys Matos; Exhibition Curated by Noel Smith; Environment by Vanessa Diaz; Organized by USFCAM.
