Cuban artist to speak at Center for the Visual Arts

Holly Disch

Tania Bruguera, a Cuban performance, installation and video artist, will speak at noon on Friday, April 1, in room 165 of the Center for the Visual Arts.

The lecture will focus on her performance “#YoTambienExijo,” meaning, “I also demand” and will briefly explain her “Political Timing Specific” work method.

Bruguera is an advocate for free speech, which has resulted in Cuban prison time from many performances. According to the announcement on the School of Art’s website, she is the founder of  “a hub for civic literacy in Cuba” called the Hannah Arendt Institute of Artivism.

The lecture is free to the public.
