The Evolution of African Visuality in Cuban Art: A talk by Raul Ruiz Miyares

View Full Event Description

Join Raul Ruiz Miyares for a talk on the African presence in Cuba and its’ influence in regard to its representation in art. During the colonial period in Cuba, the first painters were descendants of Africans who recreated images of virgins, saints, and sacrifices. With time, the art evolved to depict scenes from everyday life, as well as the life of Africans and their descendants. Today, we continue to find exemplary models of African heritage in the visual arts in Santiago de Cuba.

Raul Ruiz Miyares is an art critic and specialist in Afro-Cuban culture and religions. He has worked as a researcher at the Fernando Ortiz African Cultural Center, and currently works at the Casa del Caribe in Santiago de Cuba. This event is free and open to the public. The talk will be given in Spanish.
