Product Details


“A rich revelation of Cuban art today; it will amaze, fascinate and instruct.”
—Fredric Jameson

“This brilliant book charts the cultural life in Cuba from the coming to power of Raúl Castro to the ‘normalization’ of relations with the US. What could be more timely than a cognitive map of this already heterogeneous island, once a trigger point in the Cold War, as it is vectored by new forces that are planetary in reach—neoliberalism, climate change, and pervasive surveillance?”
—Hal Foster, author of Bad New Days: Art, Criticism, Emergency

“Price’s insights into this complicated and conflictive landscape make for cultural criticism at its best—ample in range, acute in its eye for the telling detail. Contemporary Cuba is a moving target and this book gets that, following along with clarity, grace and flashes of illumination.”
—Rachel Weiss, author of To and From Utopia in the New Cuban Art

“A superbly crafted book that takes scholarship on Cuban art and literature in a fresh, entirely new direction. Planet/Cuba is both uniquely timely and full of foresight: it will shape discussion of contemporary Cuba for years to come.”
—Esther Whitfield, Brown University

“This meticulously detailed text is a productive exploration of globalized Cuban art and culture.”
Publisher’s Weekly

“Price shrewdly surveys art in Cuba over the period since Fidel Castro ceded control of the government to his brother Raúl … [An] excellent and welcome study.”
