Roberto Diago: La Historia Recordada
The Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art in Charleston presents La Historia Recordada, an exhibition featuring Cuban multi-disciplinary artist Roberto Diago. Born in 1971 in Havana, Diago’s work is often a direct criticism of racism in Cuba and explores the roots and role of slavery in Cuban history and culture. Diago works and lives in Havana and utilizes a variety of strategies for examining the aftereffects of slavery in the 21st century. This exhibition will be part of a larger college-wide interdisciplinary project, Cuba en el Horizonte, that will focus on Cuba with special topics courses, lectures, and performances. The exhibition runs January 19 – March 3. Gallery hours: 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. Monday – Saturday; open until 7 p.m. on Thursdays. Free.
