Drapetomanía: Open House Reception
Friday, March 7th
1 to 3pm
Drapetomanía explored the “forgotten” visual arts and cultural movement of Grupo Antillano, which thrived between 1978 and 1983. The group emphasized the centrality of African practices in Cuban national culture. The exhibition featured works by artists who belonged to Groupo Antillano, as well as contemporary Cuban artists.
Curated by Alejandro de la Fuente, this exhibition was a collaboration between The 8th Floor and the Afro-Latin American Research Institute at the Hutchins Center for African and African American Research, Harvard University.
