Queloides: Race and Racism in Cuban Contemporary Art is an exhibition protesting the resurgence of racism in Cuba. The thirteen artists featured in it offer a revisionist, critical reading of the history of Cuba that highlights the contributions of the Africans and their descendants to the formation of the Americas in general, and the Cuban nation in particular.

 

From April 12, 2011 through July 21, 2011 at The 8th Floor, New York.
