Designed in Cuba Cold War Graphics

An unprecedented exhibition of original Cuban propaganda posters and magazines.

Much of Cuba’s iconic graphic design is instantly recognizable the world over. But alongside the familiar image of Che Guevara, Cuban artists have produced uncompromising design and illustration to deliver Cuba’s revolutionary message around the world. These works have rarely been seen – until now.
