“Cuba in Revolution” Opens in New York

On Friday, September 24, Cuba in Revolution opens at New York’s International Center of Photography (ICP). Showcasing approximately 150 images, the exhibition looks at Cuba before, during, and after the 1959 revolution, through the eyes of more than two dozen photojournalists from Cuba and around the globe.

Earlier this week, Cuban Art News caught up with Brian Wallis, chief curator at ICP and co-curator (with Mark Sanders) of the exhibition. Here, Wallis explains the thinking behind the show, the revelation of Cuban work rarely shown in the U.S., and why Ernest Hemingway keeps turning up at ICP.
