MOAD Ignites Political Activism Through Art

The new exhibit Q & A, Nine Contemporary Cuban Artists will open to the public at the MDC Museum of Art + Design, in the Freedom Tower, located at 600 Biscayne Blvd. on Nov. 30 with the exhibit running through Jan. 15. Visitors to the show can enjoy the work of nine Cuban creators who, through paintings, sculptures, photographs and video installations, depict the landscape of modern Cuban reality.

Curators say the exhibit addresses their country’s national and political myths, examining history, failed ideologies, corruption, censorship and the manipulation of public opinion.

The art pieces are by Alexandre Arrechea, Alejandro Campins, Javier Castro, Humberto Díaz, Fidel García, Alejandro González, Lorena Gutiérrez, Tony Labat and Fernando Rodríguez. The majority of the artists reside in the island.

Admission to the museum is free and open to the public Wednesday through Sunday from noon to 5 p.m.
