University of Virginia Art Museum director Jill Hartz and curator Andrea Douglas will give a gallery talk on Saturday, Nov. 5, at 2 p.m. in conjunction with the exhibit “Mi Cuerpo, Mi País: Cuban Art Today.” The special exhibit showcases a range of work by contemporary Cuban artists drawn from the collection and on loan to the museum. Often working with limited resources, contemporary Cuban artists are pushing the boundaries of expression and technique. Their subject matter plays on both literal and metaphoric levels, exploring concepts of personal and national identity.
The talk is free and open to the public.
The U.Va. Art Museum is open to the public free of charge Tuesday through Sunday, from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.
