Miami MoCCAD, Museum of Contemporary Art of the African Diaspora, and Lowe Art Museum co-sponsor an Art Basel Week kickoff with a complimentary reception and a conversation with Afro-Cuban artist Juan Roberto Diago and curator and founding director, Harvard Afro-Latin American Research Institute Alejandro de la Fuente, moderated by Erica Molah James, University of Miami Caribbean Art History Professor. Sunday, December 1, from 5 pm. Seating begins at the Storer Auditorium, program starts at 6 pm. Diago: The Pasts of this Afro Cuban Present is the first retrospective of Juan Roberto Diago (b.1971). This exhibition, presented by University of Miami Lowe Art Museum and the Harvard University Hutchins Center for African & African American Research in collaboration with Miami MoCAAD, offers over two decades of uninterrupted work and traces Diago's singular efforts to construct new pasts--the pasts required to explain the racial tensions of contemporary Cuba.
