Photo: Works in “Cuba From a Different Angle”
With US/Cuba relations undergoing rapid and transformative changes, a new photography exhibit opens tonight, Friday, April 10, at the Belmont Gallery of Art that explores the intimate lives of the Cuban people as well as the country’s architecture and geography.
The opening reception for “Cuba From a Different Angle” by photographer and Harvard lecturer Jonathan Hansen, will be held from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. in the gallery located on the third floor of the Homer Municipal Building, 219 Moore St., in the Town Hall complex.
“As a historian, I am drawn to the sedimentary quality of private lives, public spaces, and political and cultural institutions. The collection of photographs, … represents my attempt to capture the geological layers of Cuba’s built environment, while conveying the dynamism and exhuberance of its social life,” said Hansen, a lecturer and senior faculty associate at the David Rockefeller Center for Latin American Studies at Harvard.
The Gallery hours are Thursday and Friday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sunday, 1 p.m. to 4.
