Please join scholar and author Victor Deupi as he explores the rich cultural legacy of vernacular modernism in Cuba. For several decades in the 20th century, modern art and architecture thrived in Cuba, and a wealth of buildings and works of art were realized prior to the revolution of 1959 and in its wake. Drawing on the vernacular, Cuban artists and architects defined a way to be modern and Cuban at the same time, creating an artistic culture that oscillated between the avant-garde and tradition. Responding carefully to climate and the environment through materials, elements such as patios, arcades, wooden louvers, stained glass, and vibrant colors, Cuban Modernism offered an alternative interpretation to mid-century architectural developments on an island at the crossroads between North and South America.
Victor Deupi is a lecturer at the University of Miami School of Architecture. His research focuses on the art and architecture of the Early Modern Ibero-American world, and mid-20th-century Cuba. His books include Architectural Temperance: Spain and Rome, 1700-1759 (Routledge 2015), Transformations in Classical Architecture: New Directions in Research and Practice (Oscar Riera Ojeda Publishers, 2018), Emilio Sanchez in New York and Latin America (Routledge, 2020), Cuban Modernism: Mid-Century Architecture 1940-1970, with Jean-Francois Lejeune (Birkhäuser Verlag, 2020), and Stables: High Design for Horse and Home and Wineries of the World: Architecture and Viticulture, both with Oscar Riera Ojeda (Rizzoli, 2021). Dr. Deupi was also the President of the CINTAS Foundation dedicated to promoting Cuban art and culture from 2016-2018.
