CAFÉ XII: The Journeys of Writers and Artists of the Cuban Diaspora

May 28‐September 10, 2011

Baruj Salinas, Hai with Penca

Unconventional in every respect, CAFÉ primarily features alternating, multigenerational groups of Cuban diasporic artists conceived or born on or off the island. However, a number of Cafeteros continue to reside on the island; their work touches on the theme of insilio or inner exile, the counterpart of the political exile experience.

In memory of Antonio Benítez‐Rojo and Irena Majchrzak
Co‐curators: Leandro Soto, Andrea O’Reilly Herrera, & Grisel Pujalá
