If I Lose Memory Summary

If I Lose Memory: Twenty Contemporary Cuban Artists by Corina Matamoros

In this volume Corina Matamoros brings together some of the most outstanding creators of the Cuban contemporary artistic scene, with essays that reveal a sharp curatorial perspective. Emerging, for the most part, from shows organised at the National Museum of Fine Arts (Havana), these texts examine the personal poetics of the authors, while revealing the intense consonance that has existed between their brilliant artistic productions and the sustained and faithful welcome they have received in the collections of the National Museum, to which the author has dedicated her professional life. Creators such as Jose Toirac, Los Carpinteros, Lazaro Saavedra, Carlos Garaicoa, Abel Barroso, Aimee Garcia, Sandra Ramos, Kcho, Eduardo Ponjuan, Jose Manuel Fors, and Gustavo Perez Monzon, among others, are treated, according to the prologue by Dr. Juan Martinez, with vibrant prose, intelligence, and haiku economy. If I Lose Memory is an excellent addition to the corpus of literature on Cuban contemporary art. Text in English and Spanish.
