In her exhibition Both Sides Now: Sandra Ramos, on view at the nearby David Rockefeller Center for Latin American Studies, Cuban-born artist Sandra Ramos uses wit and humor to pose a cultural critique of Cuban republican history while exposing the failings of democratic systems against totalitarian regimes in our time. Through photographs, drawings, collage, sculpture, and video, Ramos reveals a personal and ironic perspective on the challenges of displacement and the sociopolitical and economic realities of her country.

In this event at the Harvard Art Museums, Ramos will be in conversation with curator Mary Schneider Enriquez. They will discuss the artist’s practice, which began in the 1980s in Cuba; the fall of the Berlin Wall and the economic scarcities that followed; and her move to the United States, which has given Ramos, as an immigrant, a sharply clarifying lens on both cultures and the tensions between them.

Before the discussion, we invite you to attend a reception and tour of Both Sides Now: Sandra Ramos at the David Rockefeller Center for Latin American Studies (DRCLAS). The tour will be led by Sandra Ramos; Marcela V. Ramos, arts program manager for DRCLAS; and Mary Schneider Enriquez, from 5:15 to 6:15pm.
