Discover the life and practice of Cuban contemporary painter, printmaker and installation artist Sandra Ramos who explores nationality, gender, and identity in her work by drawing from her own experiences living in and migrating out of Cuba. Join Phoenix Art Museum for viewings of five animated short films by Ramos that examine the complexities of daily life, migration and gender politics in Cuba. Ramos created the series in the years leading up to her 2014 exile. In them, the protagonists imagine many pathways to survive and escape.


Following the screenings, hear from the artist in conversation with Olga Viso, exhibition curator of Juan Francisco Elso: Por America and Phoenix Art Museum curator—at—large and senior advisor on curatorial affairs, and Julio Cesar Morales, executive director and co—chief curator of Museum Contemporary Art, Tucson.
