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.
