A Revolutionary Project: Cuba from Walker Evans to Now
At the J. Paul Getty Museum, Getty Center
May 17—October 2, 2011


A Revolutionary Project: Cuba from Walker Evans to Now looks at three critical periods in Cuba’s history as witnessed by photographers. The exhibition unites Walker Evans’ views from the 1930s with those of Cubans who participated in the 1959 revolution and contemporary foreign artists exploring the island nation since the end of Soviet support in the 1990s. Together the works span reportage, portraiture, landscape, and street photography, demonstrating a diverse international range of perspectives. In addition to Evans, the exhibition includes photographers such as Virginia Beahan, Raul Corrales, Alex Harris, Alberto Korda, Osvaldo Salas, and Alexey Titarenko.
