Cuba’s National Art Schools L.A. Muni Art Gallery Felipe Dulzaides & John Loomis Dec 7 @ 7pm PST LA/LA

Felipe Dulzaides, Sam García

Please join our friends Cuban artist Felipe Dulzaides and John Loomis, author of Revolution of Forms: Cuba’s Forgotten Art Schools, in conversation about the remarkable history and architecture of Habana’s Escuelas Nacionales de Arte (National Art Schools), constructed during the early days of the Cuban Revolution.

Dulzaides (b.1965 Habana) has engaged in a long-term project titled Utopía Posible (1999-2015) that investigates the architectural history and contemporary reality of the schools. He attended the Instituto Superior de Arte in Havana, received his MFA in New Genres from the San Francisco Art Institute, and has participated in exhibitions worldwide.

Mr. Loomis, Professor of Interior Design at San Jose State University, graduated from Stanford and has an MA in Architecture from Columbia University.

Felipe Dulzaides, Robert García

This conversation is part of Condemned To Be Modern, Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA, a far-reaching and ambitious exploration of Latin American and Latino art in dialogue with Los Angeles.
