Cuban Ingenuity: The Artistry of the Everyday Inventor

July 1 @ 10:00 am - December 1 @ 5:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 10:00 am on Sunday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, repeating until 07/01/2019

Free – $18

Through videos, photographs, and objects collected for the Cade throughout Cuba, Cuban Ingenuity highlights the ingenious vision behind dozens of innovations and inventions of necessity. Manufactured products of the mid-20th century, from US automobiles to Soviet-made washing machines, have been repaired and amended, repurposed and redesigned over nearly three generations of Cubans. Objects pieced together for functionality have nonetheless achieved an artistic elegance worthy of this exhibition and appreciation.

Cuban Ingenuity explores repurposed objects ranging from the ingenious to the outrageous, demonstrating functional solutions to creative achievements. Through first-hand collection and curation, the exhibit reflects the passionate stories of Cuban residents and their ability to adapt materials to manage harsh economic conditions and Cuba’s severe political landscape, from transportation to systems, without access to modern technologies.
