Cuba and the Art of "Trading with the Enemy"
Resumen: In 1967 the Cuban artist Wifredo Lam, then living in Europe, invited more than one hundred friends, artists, and writers, including Karel Appel, Willem de Kooning, Alexander Calder (..) and many others, to Havana to participate in an event of solidarity with the Cuban Revolution. On the night of July 17, 1967, the artists created Salón de Mayo Mural, a mural rarely seen since its inception. The participating artists, writers, and poets created symbols, images, and cartoons, wrote poems, or simply proclaimed in bold colors, "Viva la Revolución".
