Cuban Virtualities: New Media Art from the Island

A scarcity of resources coupled with the intellectual pursuits of a 
highly educated population has dramatically shaped Cuban new media art 
made over the past 10 years.  The effects of such limited access to 
digital technologies and the Internet on the island -- compounded by a 
situation of extreme geographic, political, and economic isolation -- 
has necessitated an array of creative solutions from a generation of 
artists born largely during the 1970s and 1980s.

Works by Mauricio Abad, Alexander Arrechea, Celia y Yunior, Núria Güell, 
Jairo Gutierrez, Ernesto Leal, Glenda Léon, Levi Orta, Rodolfo Peraza, 
Naivy Pérez, Susana Pilar Delahante Matienzo, and José Rolando Rivera 
examine the unique applications of digital technologies in Cuban art 
through video installations, net art, performance documentation, and 
interactive media.

The *Tufts University Art Gallery at the Shirley and Alex Aidekman Arts 
Center* is proud to present *Cuban Virtualities: New Media Art from the 
Island*, featuring new works by Mauricio Abad, Alexander Arrechea, Celia 
y Yunior, Núria Güell, Jairo Gutierrez, Ernesto Leal, Glenda Léon, Levi 
Orta, Rodolfo Peraza, Naivy Pérez, Susana Pilar Delahante Matienzo, and 
José Rolando Rivera, on view from September 5 through December 8, 2013.

Cuban Virtualities is co-curated by Liz Munsell and Rewell Altunaga and 
is the first exhibition of Cuban new media art held outside of Cuba.
