Scarfone/ Hartley Gallery. The Tampa University 

November 9- December 12, 2018

On Nov. 9, The University of Tampa’s Scarfone/Hartley Gallery opened the exhibition titled Pedro Pablo Oliva’s Cuba: HiStories, highlighting the art of a nationally recognized master of Cuban contemporary art. One of the very few voices still living and working on the island, Pedro Pablo Oliva offers a unique perspective on issues of identity, cultural heritage and appropriation, nationality, socio-economical conditions, political commitment vs. personal self-realization. Drawing from private Florida art collections, the exhibition included a rich selection of works from the 1970s to present, many of which never before seen in the United States and drawn from Oliva’s most celebrated series.
