Adios Utopia: Dreams and Deceptions in Cuban Art Since 1950

Organized by the Walker Art Center and the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston in partnership with the Cisneros Fontanals Art Foundation (CIFO), Adiós Utopia: Dreams and Deceptions in Cuban Art Since 1950 will be the most comprehensive exhibition of contemporary Cuban art presented in the U.S. Bringing together more than 100 works, the exhibition and its companion publication focus on artists who were born and trained in Cuba and who remained in Cuba after the 1959 Revolution, tracing the development of artistic production through key moments of Cuban history over the past 65 years. Rather than provide an exhaustive survey or totalizing account of Cuban art, the aim of Adiós Utopia is to reveal the dialogue and frictions among constellations of works that embody Cuba’s utopian spirit. With the current shifts in U.S.-Cuba relations, it is the ideal time for U.S. audiences to gain a greater understanding of the history of Cuba, its art, its people, and its history of relations with the U.S.
