Waiting for the Idols to Fall
Cuban visual artists of the last few decades have fixed on a group of icons to represent their social, cultural, and human collective. Waiting for the Idols to Fall considers how Cuban artists represent “lo cubano” without resorting to some variation on the same old icons. It’s too early to know in this transitional period if there will be a need to represent, reaffirm, or cling to something in order to continue being Cuban.
