This Artist Talk is a unique opportunity to hear from Cuban artists as they discuss poetry and the social role of artists in twenty-first century Cuban society. Coco Fusco will moderate a discussion with filmmaker Miguel Coyula, actress Lynn Cruz and poet Amaury Pacheco. Cruz and Pacheco are both featured in Fusco’s newest video work Vivir en junio con la lengua afuera. After the talk, please join us for a reception with Fusco, Cruz, Pacheco, and Coyula.
Funding for "Poetry in Contemporary Cuba" is provided by the Gus Lobenwein Memorial Fund and the Walter Haskins Fund in memory of Stacey K. Haskins of the Community Foundation of Sarasota County.
