Selections from The Madeleine P. Plonsker Collection of Contemporary Cuban Photography

The Perlman Teaching Museum is honored to present this selection from the Madeleine P. Plonsker Collection of Contemporary Cuban Photography. Since her initial visit to Cuba in 2002, Plonsker has built a significant and wide ranging collection, a portion of which is now on view in our gallery. 

The photographs chosen for this exhibit were selected for their evocative connection to a specific sense of Cuba in space and time. The more than 25 artists represented turn an inquisitive and descriptive lens on a unique place, offering viewers points of access from afar. Together they illustrate what Plonsker characterizes as the artists’ “restless energy, controlled by infinite patience.”

Please join us at the Perlman Teaching Museum for a celebration and talk with Plonsker and visiting artists on February 28 at 7:00 p.m.
