Panel Discussion: Cuba’s Social and Cultural Life, featuring artist Pedro Pablo Oliva
March 17 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm
Join us for a discussion inspired by the work of Cuban artist Pedro Pablo Oliva, whose fantastical and provocative paintings and sculptures address multiple aspects of Cuban life during the last half century, from utopian zeal and delusions to power politics, moral contradictions, social turmoil, migratory crisis or the figure of Communist revolutionary Fidel Castro, among others.
Panelists include David Horta, Curator and specialist on Oliva’s work; Lillian Guerra, UF Professor of Cuban & Caribbean History; and Raul Villarreal, Visual Artist-Author and Coordinator for Cultural Programs, Santa Fe College.
The panel discussion will start at 3 pm and a book signing with artist Pedro Pablo Oliva will follow. The exhibition The Art of Pedro Pablo Oliva is on view March 2 – July 7.
Pedro Pablo Olivia’s Book Extranos Juegos, will be available for sale at the Harn Museum bookstore.
