Abstract

The Cuban Research Institute (CRI) will hold a one-day meeting to assess the significance of Cuban and Cuban-American art for the construction of national and diasporic identities. This conference and book project will delve into some of the defining moments of Cuba's artistic evolution from a multidisciplinary perspective, including art history, architecture, history, literary criticism, and cultural studies. Situating cuban art within a wider context of complex references, internal and external influences, and socio-historical connections, scholars will examine the enduring links between Cuban art and cultural identity. In particular, the conference will take advantage of the Darlene M. and Jorge M. Perez Art Collection at FIU, which documents the historical trajectory of Cuban art since the late 1800s beginning with Victor Patricio Landaluze's work. Lecturers will be encouraged to include examples of Cuban art from the Perez Art collection at FIU.
