Cuban Art History Through Cinema Poster Design


Come experience a once in a lifetime exploration of Cuban art history through the lens of cinema poster design with Cuban designer, professor, and art curator Claudio Sotolongo.

Claudio teaches Design History at the Faculty of Art History and Literature at the University of Havana. For the last 12 years, he has collaborated with the Cuban Film Institute and the Cuban Film Archive, and has designed for the Havana Film Festival. As a curator, he organized and contributed to Cuban poster exhibits in Cuba, USA, United Kingdom, Mexico, Spain, and Switzerland.

Claudio is a co-author in the 2011 edition of Soy Cuba: Cuban Cinema Posters From After the Revolution as well as the 2011 edition of Ciudadano Cartel. He also co-authored the script for the documentary film 'Poética Gráfica Insular'.

He was the 2010 recipient of the Estudio 21 funds for projects from the Centre for the Development of Visual Arts in Havana and in 2011 of the funds for projects Raul Corrales from the Cuban Photo Archive.

This is a free event, with Claudio's work available for purchase at the end of the evening.
