Cuba in Transition – Lobby Exhibit

November 2, 2017 - November 30, 2017 - Free

The Artist’s Statement

The socialist revolution has not failed in Cuba. It is a work in progress that we can all learn from and support. The country is going through another unique phase in its revolutionary cycle. The capitalist world, and the United States in particular, would have you believe that Cuba will soon fall under its domination once more. And return to the hedonistic Mafiosi-run playground that it was before. Canada is dominated by US culture, and Cuba too is feeling the return of that cultural imperialism. There are dramatic changes now in the look and feel of areas of downtown Havana as breaches appear in the economic embargo that the US introduced at the start of the Sixties. This photographic show is an attempt to “capture” some of that Cuban culture before it is torn down to make way for the US hotel and fast-food chains.
