GALLERY TALK | Elvis Fuentes on Roberto Diago: La Historia Recordada

Saturday, January 20, 2018
2:00PM
Halsey Institute Galleries

Join us for a gallery talk with Elvis Fuentes on the work of Roberto Diago for the exhibition La Historia Recordada. Fuentes is a scholar on Latin American Art and has contributed the essay to Diago’s exhibition brochure.


The Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art at the College of Charleston is pleased to present 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 much larger college-wide interdisciplinary project with a focus on Cuba entitled Cuba en el Horizonte that will include special topics courses, lectures, and performances across departments of the College of Charleston. The Halsey Institute’s exhibition will be the focal point for this semester-long engagement with Cuban culture, politics, history, economics, and its potential future.
