ICP is proud to present ¡Cuba, Cuba! at the Southampton Arts Center. This momentous exhibition will include more than 100 color and black-and-white photographs from the 1950s to the present by over 30 Cuban photographers including Alberto Korda, Raúl Corrales, and Marucha (María Eugenia Haya), as well as American masters including Hamptonites Burt Glinn and Elliott Erwitt. Featuring vintage and contemporary works, this show will include never before seen images and a unique collection of historic artifacts, political posters and publications of the time.
From the decadent Havana nightlife of the 1950s to the 1959 Revolution and its iconic leaders, to everyday life in contemporary Cuba, this exhibition provides a multifaceted portrait of the country, exemplifying the richness of Cuban culture, the strength of its people, and the complexity of its political history. As diplomatic relations between Cuba and the United States are being restored, ¡Cuba, Cuba! offers a unique view into the island Christopher Columbus described as "the most beautiful land that human eyes have ever seen."
