Abstract: Both the MFAH and the Walker promoted Adiós Utopia on their respective websites: https://www.mfah.org/exhibitions/adios-utopia-dreams-deceptions-cuban-art-since-1950 and https://walkerart.org/calendar/2017/adios-utopia. The Walker’s webpage included links to a number of related scholarly articles illuminating the exhibitions content, including the following examples: https://walkerart.org/magazine/adios-utopia-cuba-olga-viso-essay; https://walkerart.org/magazine/excerpt-rachel-weiss-to-from-utopia-new-cuban-art; and https://walkerart.org/magazine/olga-viso-rachel-weiss-post-revolutionary-cuban-art. The Walker also made available online its opening day talks, in both English and Spanish: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8B-j_dEwyhA; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TWJOpvo48W4; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L64oEXAqhlg; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PDDQTfAwQSs; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_pNjv9QFIbE; and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0fmHkDeeqw4. Additionally, outside of the grant funded activities, CIFO-USA published a scholarly catalogue to accompany Adiós Utopia: Dreams and Deceptions in Cuban Art Since 1950. Available in English and Spanish editions, the book was designed to provide critical context for understanding the culture, history, and politics of Cuba. The 404-page hardcover book features 150 images of artworks produced in Cuba during this time, and more than 100 images from archival documents spanning over 60 years. The publication includes essays by historians, art critics, curators, artists and other academics, along with a comprehensive chronology. Copies of this catalogue were sent to NEH Program Officers in April 2017.
