The Afro-Cuban painter Juan Roberto Diago came of age in the 1990s in the midst of a firestorm. The collapse of the Soviet Union devastated Cuban trade and the island’s economy suffered a teeth-jarring blow. Famine followed. Social unrest was inevitable.
The Ethelbert Cooper Gallery of African & African American Art
Welcome to the Cooper Gallery! We are a Harvard University Gallery featuring contemporary African and African American art in exhibitions and installations: imagined by curators, faculty, artists, and guests. In our exquisite gallery space designed by David Adjaye, we are in conversation with diverse cultures, art archives, and historical traditions. Our programming offers a myriad of events ranging from: local engagements, workshops, and artist talks; to symposia and lectures. We look forward to sharing our exhibitions and gallery events with you!
