What:  Revealing complexities on–and off–the island, Cuba Is explores aspects of Cuba not easily accessed by foreigners–and sometimes not even by Cubans themselves. Over 120 photos feature subjects ranging from defiant youth known as Los Frikis to the hard-partying children of the 1%, the underground system of sharing digital content – El paquete to Miamis Chonga girls.


Cuba Is also includes archival images and work done on assignment by four photographers: Elliot Erwitt, Leysis Quesada, Ral Caibano, and Tria Giovan, along with an original documentary, produced by the Annenberg Foundation, highlighting these photographers at work. A virtual reality experience will bring the viewers directly into Cubas current and dynamic music scene.
