The Grand Rapids Art Museum opened the exhibit titled "Contemporary Art From Cuba: Irony and Survival on the Utopian Island"

Of course, the references in their work are frequently Cuban. And while it enriched the experience of the work to know some of the cultural and historical references, it would have been a mistake to read these works simply as messages about Cuban reality. -2000
