Real Cuba opens September 28th with a curator talk September 29th 5 to 8pm. Raul was unable to secure a visa to travel because the US Embassy wouldn’t grant him an interview until December. Not much has changed since the last administration shut down the Embassy. Except now the Cuban economy is in tatters due to the ongoing Embargo and the challenges of tourism post COVID.
