Saturday, September 9th, Annenberg Space for Photography will open “Cuba Is,” a “photography exhibition that goes beyond the folklore and offers new insight into Cuba’s current reality.” At this time in history, when Cuba is opening up once again to Americans, it is an opportunity to see the hidden side of Cuba, captured in over 120 photos with subjects including defiant youth known as “Los Frikis, and Miami’s “Chonga girls” before tourism and development change the face of Cuba forever.

The multimedia exhibition also includes archival images, film and a virtual reality experience that will bring you into Cuba’s vibrant music scene. The archival work of four photographers: Elliot Erwitt, Leysis Quesada, Raúl Cañibano, and Tria Giovan will be on display along with “an original documentary, produced by the Annenberg Foundation, highlighting these photographers at work.” The exhibit will be on display until March 4, 2018 (Closed Mondays and Tuesdays)
