”Human Landscapes: Storytelling and Surrealism in the work of Raúl Cañibano”
Cambridge Hispanic and Lusophone Research Seminars (CHLRS) 2019-20
This networking event/workshop will bring together Cuban experts, researchers and practitioners (including, for example, academics, curators, filmmakers, photographers and visual artists) whose work involves using innovative approaches to curatorial practice and visual storytelling to address key social issues in Cuban society that relate specifically to the United Nations sustainable development goals.
Following a period of momentous change for Cuba, signified by the end of the Castro era, this exhibition will explore contemporary documentary photography and its role in representing the country and its people both inside and outside the island. Showcasing work by world-renowned photographers such as Raúl Cañibano and Michael Christopher Brown, the exhibition will include previously unseen photographs that offer a snapshot of the changing face of Cuba.
