Upcoming Events

Cuba: Anthropology of a Country

Augusta Savage Gallery
(All day)

The Augusta Savage Gallery at the University of Massachusetts Amherst will feature an exhibition of projected digital photographs by Yeraldine Ordoñez entitled Cuba: Anthropology of a Country from January 27 through February 17, 2015.

Photographer Yeraldine Ordoñez was born in La Guaira, Venezuela and currently lives in Miami, Florida. Her latest series, Cuba: Anthropology of a Country is a work-in-progress that has been developed over the last two years.  In it, the nightly journeys in Havana fuse with its habitual daytime routines, the human landscape, the every-day bartering of a better life, the ‘Malecon’ life and the aerial photos of a capital city that constructs and deconstructs the habitat where these individuals reside, all come to shape a complex visual and geographic narrative of the happenings in this island.

A self-taught artist, Ordoñez graduated from Florida Atlantic University with a degree in Software Development.  Her other major photographic projects include Bridges of Coral Gables (2012), Threads in a City (2010) and Milonga at The Biltmore (2011).

This exhibit is free and open to the general public

Location: Augusta Savage Gallery
