“A half-day or one-day tour with curator Sussette is a fascinating and compelling experience that takes in visits to the studios of contemporary artists in Cuba. The tour is geared to people who are interested in collecting Latin American art and for those wanting to learn more about contemporary art in wider socio-cultural context.”
