DPI Prof Iliana Cepero brings "Cuba Is" to the NY Times

Thursday, Oct 26, 2017

Iliana Cepero, adjunct faculty at the Department of Photography and Imaging, leant her expertise to an article about the impact of Cuban art in and outside of Cuba. The New York Times featured "Cuba Is" at the Annenburg Space for Photography, an exhibition curated by Prof. Cepero. 

With its politics in flux, Cuba may be more fascinating than ever for Americans already intrigued by its music, culture and art. The interest is evident from the number of Cuba-themed museum shows and exhibits around the United States...

“For many years from the ’50s to late ’80s, Cuba was a cultural center in Latin America,” said Iliana Cepero, professor of Latin American art and Cuban Culture at New York University and the New School. “This relationship has been so tense for so many decades. Cubans have been waiting for this moment.”

Prof. Cepero has taught the Latin American Photography course at DPI and in Spring 2018 will teach Contemporary Cuba: Art, Politics, History, Ideas as part of the Open Arts department at NYU Tisch School of the Arts.
