The Artes de Cuba festival couldn’t possibly do justice to the creative life of contemporary Cuba without including the work of visual artists. (...) Likely to be a crowd favorite: Esterio Segura’s “Hybrid of a Chrysler,” a composite work made by adding metal wings to a 1953 car. It recalls not just one of the island’s most popular tourist images — the oversize American cars from the middle of the last century still used as taxis — but also its isolation, both self-imposed and imposed upon it. The work was seen at the Venice Biennale in 2017 and will be on view on the River Terrace. —      


In celebration of Havana's iconic cars, Esterio Segura, whose Hybrid of a Chrysler, recently featured at the 57th edition of the Venice Biennale will be on display on the River Terrace.


Outside on the River Terrace, Esterio Segura adds the latest variation to one of his familiar themes with Hybrid of a Chrysler, which envisions airplane wings on a classic car of the 1950s, much like the almendrones on the streets of Havana.
