    The Art Institute of Boston at Lesley University presents “Of Cuban Invention,” an exhibit featuring over 45 works on paper, painting, and sculpture by eight world-renowned Cuban artists.

    The exhibit coincides with the 40th anniversary of the Center for Cuban Studies (CCS) in New York City, which in 1991 spearheaded a successful lawsuit against the U.S. Treasury Department that legalized the importation and sale of original Cuban art.

    “Of Cuban Invention” features Cuban artists: Carlos Cárdenas, Carlos Estévez, Rocio Garcia, Manuel Mendive, José Garcia Montebravo, William Pérez, Luis “El Estudiante” Rodríguez, and Zaida del Río.

    The exhibit is curated by Andrew Mroczek, Director of the AIB Gallery at University Hall, in collaboration with Cuban Art Space of the CCS in New York. Founded in 1972, the Center for Cuban Studies is dedicated to providing information about contemporary Cuba and normalizing relations between Cuba and the United States.

    The Cuban Art Space of the CCS opened in 1999 as a gallery of regularly scheduled exhibits and cultural programs. Once the Art Space opened, it began to exhibit its own collection, and over the years it has continued to bring in the works of Cuban artists to American audiences.
