Books & Books and The Cuban Research Institute present An Evening with Victor Deupi in conversation with Nathan Timpano and Dr. Ann Koll, discussing “Emilio Sanchez in New York and Latin America “. Recorded live August 25, 2020 in partnership with Miami Book Fair.
An evening of architecture where Victor Deupi sits down with Nathan Timpano and Dr. Ann Koll to discuss the life and artistic activities of Emilio Sanchez (1921–1999) in New York, and Latin America in the 1940s and 1950s. More specifically, Emilio Sanchez in New York and Latin America will consider Sanchez in the wider context of mid-century Cuban artists, and cross-cultural exchange between New York, Cuba, and the Caribbean. The book reflects on why Sanchez chose to be a mobile observer of the American and Caribbean vernacular at a time when such an approach seemed at odds with the mainstream avant-garde. The book includes a foreword by Dr. Ann Koll, former Executive Director/Curator of the Emilio Sanchez Foundation, and an introduction by Dr. Nathan J. Timpano, University of Miami Department of Art and Art History. All scholars of modern art, Caribbean studies, architectural history, and Latin American and Hispanic studies will enjoy!
