The journey to the Sublime
When public life shouts, personal life sobs. 

Essay by Norberto Marrero Pírez

The artist book collaborations have grown out of multiple conversations with Cuban artists since 2003.  In 2007 the artists chose three themes that primarily impact their social and political relationships:  Power, Privacy and Waiting.

The trilogy of artists books Cronica insular:  Poder 2010, Privacidad 2011 and La Espera 2013 tell the stories of their lived reality in 21st century Cuba.

The artists have donated five copies of each book to Cuban cultural institutions.
