minds@work: Art and Inner Exile in Cuba Presented by Jesús Jambrina

While the cultural production of Cuban exiles around the world in the last 58 years is well studied, the work of a few Cuban artists, who decided to stay on the island despite being censored, is less known. This presentation explores the art paintings of Juan G.G. (Yonny) (Havana, 1933-2010) in the context of the Cuban Revolution, as part of what some critics named the “Inner Exile”, meaning those, mainly intellectuals, who did not leave the country, but continued working at home without any institutional support.

minds@work: Pilgrimage Among Beasts: Narnia, and the Beasts Who Teach Presented by Vickie Holtz Wodzak

What is the relationship between Narnia and our world? This basic question is considered repeatedly in C.S. Lewis’ Narnia Chronicles, most often with respect to the passage of time. Lewis establishes another type of link when he replicates the visual structure of 13th century beast-illuminated manuscripts and uses animals and non-humans to instruct the pilgrim humans who enter this world and the pilgrim readers who join them. Free and open to the public.
