Contemporary Cuban Printmaking @ Springfield Art Museum
Dec 8 2018 @ 9:24 pm – Mar 17 2019 @ 10:24 pm

Pulled entirely from the collection of the Racela Educational and Charitable Foundation, this exhibition presents over 70 prints by thirty-three Cuban artists who have all worked at the Taller Experimental de Gráfica de Habana – the oldest, continuously running print workshop in Cuba. From its inception, the workshop has focused on connecting artists with traditional printmaking techniques and fostering a dynamic artistic community based on the sharing and exchange of ideas, experimentation, and art criticism. This supportive community has allowed Cuban artists a relative freedom of expression, even amid the country’s larger political and cultural issues.
