"Queloides: Race & Racism in Cuban Contemporary Art," Ecosystem, 2009


I made this quick video last Friday night, April 8, 2011 at The 8th Floor (http://www.the8thfloor.org/, 17W17th St, NYC) of Cuban painter Douglas Perez's massive polyptych "Ecosystem, 2009," which is part of the "Queloides" exhibition of race and racism in contemporary Cuban art.

It's all part of the three-month long Si Cuba! Festival that began on March 31.  Much more to come...
