Mario CarreÃ±o: The Early Years.
Mario CarreÃ±o (1913 -1999) is one of the key artists of the second avant-garde generation in Cuban art. This lecture focuses on his early work from the late 1930s until 1943, when he developed a vocabulary that synthesized the clarity of neo-classicism with Cuban themes. The lecture will also explore CarreÃ±o's contact with muralist David Alfaro Siqueiros, when the Mexican master lived in Havana in 1943.

Second Lecture - Friday, September 27 - 7:00 p.m.
Antonia Eiriz In Context.
Neo-figurative painter Antonia Eiriz (1929 -1995) is one of the most significant artists of her generation. Eiriz's artwork is powerful and somber. Imbued with an audacious expression of angst, human suffering and social criticism, her imagery often connects to other great figures of the art world such as, Goya, Francis Bacon and Edward Munch. This lecture will present the main themes of her paintings in the socio-political context of her time, and relate it to her contemporaries in Latin America.
