SOY CUBA / I AM CUBA: The Contemporary Landscapes of Roger Toledo

Arthur Ross Gallery, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, PA. April 6 – June 2, 2019

This exhibition presents the work of Cuban artist Roger Toledo whose evocative landscape paintings engage contemporary issues of mobility and stasis, and the rapidly evanescing markers of Cuban history, during a time of rapid change and increasing socio-economic instability in the island nation. The exhibition has been researched and developed by Penn art history students who traveled to Havana to meet with the artist as part of a curatorial seminar taught in the History of Art Department by Professor Gwendolyn DuBois Shaw.
