Servando Cabrera Moreno (1923-1981 Havana, Cuba) ranks among the most important names of Cuban painting of all times. Ten Erotic Works by Servando Cabrera Moreno is the selected title for this solo exhibition which pays tribute to this excellent artist and attests his painterly bravura. The installation features fine examples of Servando’s seminal oeuvre – his erotic and homoerotic works, rendered with outstanding force and courage during the late 1960s and 1970s. It also provides a stimulating context for exploring the relationship of this subject matter and the difficult realities of the artist’s personal life.
