From reviews of the first edition: "The book is an essential source for understanding not only Cuba and its visual imagery but also the stuff of Latin American art." --Artforum "Camnitzer . . . is sensitive to the issues faced by Cuban artists, and provides acute insights into the problems faced by artists in developing countries in attempting to place their work internationally while locating it solidly in national and cultural concerns." --Art Book Review Quarterly "Making a supreme effort to remain politically unbiased, Camnitzer treats the key issues of the role of art in a socialist nation, the artists' dilemma of individuality versus social commitment, censorship, and access and lack thereof. His direct, almost conversational style makes for an informative and consciousness-raising reading. The artists emerge as distinct individuals." --Choice ". . . invaluable in providing the 'feel' of contemporary Cuba." --Latin American Research Review Starting with the groundbreaking 1981 exhibit called "Volumen I," New Art of Cuba provided the first comprehensive look at the works of the first generation of Cuban artists completely shaped by the 1959 revolution. This revised edition includes a new epilogue that discusses developments in Cuban art since the book's publication in 1994, including the exodus of artists in the early 1990s, the effects of the new dollar economy on the status of artists, and the shift away from socialist themes to more personal concerns in the artists' works. Twenty-four new color plates augment the more than 200 b w illustrations of the original volume.
