  “My experience as the first artist invited from the US in Cuba’s  
3rd Havana Biennial”

  Samia Halaby, a Palestinian artist now living in NY, discusses her  
experience in Cuba, a state where the working class took power. She  
examines differences between the bourgeoisie's Venice Biennale of  
1988 and the Havana Biennial of 1989. The presentation also provides  
background on abstraction and its sources in revolution, and  
contrasts it with the idealism behind current, very retrograde,  
capitalist painting.
