Join us for this unique performance by Cuban artist Yali Romagoza
Thursday, November 01, 2018 @ 6:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m. | Main Gallery
As part of the exhibition Cubans: Post Truth, Pleasure, and Pain, New York City-based Cuban multimedia artist Yali Romagoza will present her performance piece, "Monument to a Great Living Artist" in the galleries at SECCA. As Cuca-the-Cuba-Doll, Romagoza strikes poses on a pedestal to a recording of her own voice reciting fragments from Linda Nochlin's feminist essay "Why Have There Been No Great Women Artists?" (1971). She mocks the misogynist and racist stereotypes that particularly plague immigrant women, separated from their families and exposed to prejudice and violence on a daily basis. Romagoza's performance coincides with the final days of this exhibition closing November 4, 2018.
