Building a Feminist Archive: Cuban Women Photographers in the US shows the varied contributions of Cuban women artists living and working in the United States since the seventies when the concept of a collective “Latino” identity became crucial. It is curated by Aldeide Delgado, founder and director of Women Photographers International Archive (WOPHA). The artists in the exhibition started to attend art schools and found themselves inspired by and responding to the social movements of their time. They created new images of their communities and examined pluricultural experiences challenging the notion of being exclusively Cuban or American. This show reveals artwork rarely seen or exhibited, and at the same time promotes reflection on the social, cultural and political identities of Cuban Women Artists in the United States within the current discussion of Latinx art.
