Cuban Mid-Century Design

Primarily focused on the post-revolutionary era of Cuba from the late 1950s through the 1970s, this volume brings together a prolific cohort of artists, designers, and architects that materialized the ideology of their time, and ultimately narrate the country's arc from revolutionary promise to authoritarian retrenchment.

Design and architecture played an important role in shaping the country's identity and cultural expression during this time period. Consisting of nearly 100 works, including approximately 50 pieces of furniture, the exhibition and accompanying catalogue features seminal objects of functional design, architectural renderings, speculative prototypes for a "design for all" ethos, and key examples of art and graphic design that contributed to the zeitgeist of the era.

The book also includes several examples by contemporary Cuban artists and designers who explore how this post-revolutionary aesthetic survives today.
