AFFICHES CUBAINES. RÉVOLUTION ET CINÉMA
from 31 October 2019 to 2 February 2020
Sixty years after the end of the Cuban Revolution, the Musée des Arts Décoratifs presents an exhibition exploring the golden age of Cuban poster design spanning the 1960s and 1970s, and the unique manner in which the art form captured the era’s political and cultural context.
Due to the country’s embargos and political isolation, Cuban poster design remained unknown for decades, and has only just begun to emerge from the its insulated birthplace. Affiches cubaines: révolution et cinéma, 1959-2019 (Cuban Posters: Revolution and Cinema, 1959-2019) explores this ebullient style of graphic design through 250 posters, most of which come from the museum’s collection. The exhibition provides an opportunity to discover and understand the development of this school of artists and, through them, trace the history of Cuba.
