Although in recent years, Cuba has been the object of unprecedented fascination and attraction in the political, cultural and tourism spheres, the island has always been seen as a mythical and mysterious land, a source of misunderstandings, fantasies and lust. While few Cuban artists have managed to develop an international career over the past three decades, the Cuban art scene has experienced a renewal of energy in recent years that has continuously increased a paradox in a place where there are cultural infrastructures but there are no private commercial galleries. Cuba Talks offers a broad collective portrait that brings together artists from different generations, revealing the dynamism and the incredible stylistic and thematic breadth, of a scene in constant change, resonant far beyond the borders of Cuba, with a history that is just beginning.
