Cuban Virtualities: New Media Art from the Island

September 5 – December 8, 2013

Koppelman Gallery and Remis Sculpture Court

A scarcity of resources coupled with the intellectual pursuits of a highly educated population has dramatically shaped Cuban new media art made over the past 10 years.  The effects of such limited access to digital technologies and the Internet on the island – compounded by a situation of extreme geographic, political, and economic isolation – has necessitated an array of creative solutions from a generation of artists born largely during the 1970s and 1980s.

Works by Mauricio Abad, Alexander Arrechea, Celia y Yunior, Núria Güell, Jairo Gutierrez, Ernesto Leal, Glenda Léon, Levi Orta, Rodolfo Peraza, Naivy Pérez, Susana Pilar Delahante Matienzo, and José Rolando Rivera examine the unique applications of digital technologies in Cuban art through video installations, net art, performance documentation, and interactive media.

Cuban Virtualities is co-curated by Liz Munsell and Rewell Altunaga and is the first exhibition of Cuban new media art held outside of Cuba.
