This is the first compilation of Alberto Casado’s work, published in conjunction with the Spring 2005 exhibition at Art in General. Casado’s vibrant artworks combine traditional Cuban arts and craft techniques with contemporary religious, cultural, and political references. Considered to be the conscience of the Cuban artworld, Casado tackles sensitive subject matter, addressing artistic censorship under Fidel Castro, the popularity of the lottery among the poor, and the history of US/Cuba relations. The catalog is bilingual in English and Spanish and includes an interview with the artist and essays by Holly Block, former curator and executive director of Art in General, and noted poet and art writer Orlando Hernández.
