Text Box: A lecture by Alexis Esquivel, Cuban visual and performance 
artist whose work has openly explored themes of history, race and 
identity, particularly in a Cuban cultural context

This lecture offers a reflection on the issue of race in Cuba and its 
historical development, drawing from an analysis of some of the most 
important artists to address these themes since the turn of the century. 
Esquivel will guide a virtual trip through a series of exhibitions 
mounted in Cuba and abroad in the last 18 years, examining the 
complexities of the debate over race in Cuba.Through the voices of the 
artists the talk will explore the social reality Afro-Cubans in an 
island context. From the curated expositions of /Queloides I Parte/ 
(1997), Ni /músicos ni deportistas (1997),Queloides/ (1999), /Queloides, 
Raza y racismo en el Arte cubano contemporáneo /(2010, 2011, 2012), to 
/Without Masks: Contemporary Afro-Cuban Art/ (2010, 2014) and 
/Drapetomanía, Homenaje al Grupo Antillano/ (2013, 2014, 2015), Esquivel 
will seek to understand, compare and explain the features of different 
spaces in Afro-transatlantic history. He will also analyze the symbolic 
impact of the Obama era and the construction of the story realized in 
the African Diaspora, as well as the effect of reestablishing diplomatic 
relations between the United States and Cuba.
