Cuban Architects at Home and in Exile: The Modernist Generation Exhibit on Display at the Coral Gables Museum
The University of Miami School of Architecture presents the exhibition, Cuban Architects at Home and in Exile: The Modernist Generation co-curated by Professors Victor Deupi and Jean-François Lejeune at The Coral Gables Museum. The project launches a partnership with the museum and explores how modernity and modernism impacted the architecture in Cuba and how it has survived in the island. The aim of the exhibition is to understand 20th-century Cuban architectural culture in its widest context. Indeed, this project is not just about Cuba, as the architects under consideration spread Cuban culture beyond the confines of the island to countries such as the US, Mexico, Puerto Rico, Venezuela, France, Spain and many more. The exhibit will focus on several Cuban architects and artists whose work represents the challenges that their generation had to face to establish themselves in a country on the verge of dramatic change, and then as expatriates in various foreign countries. The exhibit will be on display from November 3, 2016 through February 26, 2017.
