Please join us for a lecture by New York-based artist Anthony Goicolea, whose works are featured in 21c Cincinnati’s current exhibition, Transporting Transformation: Cuba, In and Out. A celebrated photographer, painter, sculptor, and installation artist, Anthony Goicolea journeyed for the first time to Cuba in 2008, where he saw and photographed his family’s homes, schools, churches, and other sites of personal significance. Goicolea invents the past in these constructed photographs, generating a fairy-tale-like mythology from found and invented memories. Events begins at 5:30pm with an opening reception and cash bar. Artist lecture begins at 6pm. Event is free and open to the public.
