The City of Santiago de Cuba, Centro Provincial de Artes Plásticas y Diseño in collaboration with Tony Savino Photography and Lobey Art & Travel will present The Face of Neocolonialism at an opening night reception on Friday February 3, 2017 at 5:00pm at La Galleria de Arte Universal. The exhibit will then be open to the public through February 17, 2017.
This exhibition, curated by artists Rosio De Los Angeles and Romel Vuelta Riva, is organized by Tony Savino Photography and Lobey Art & Travel and will feature the work of photographer and visual artist Tony Savino.
It exposes the life of sugar workers, most of whom are Haitians or of Haitian descent and their families. It also documents the struggle for labor rights, basic human rights and the complex relationship between Haitian and Dominican workers under a neocolonial regime.
La Galleria de Arte Universal is housed in the former U.S. Consulate Building and hosts year round exhibitions by noted Cuban and foreign artists.
A warm invitation is extended to the Universidad de Oriente Santiago de Cuba and other educational and cultural organizations, to the Haitian community and student body of Santiago de Cuba and to the public at large to attend and enjoy not only the exhibit, but also the rich history, culture and people of our host city.
Admission to the Universal Gallery is open and free to the public, live entertainment and refreshments will be provided.
