.Flora Fong is one of the best-known Cuban female artists and one of the first women who finished art studies in post-revolutionary Cuba and developed a professional career as an artist. Active in art since 1970, she assumed a forerunner role as a woman on the Cuban art scene. All this happened at the time Cuba became a Socialist State after the 1959 revolution under the direction of Fidel and Raúl Castro, Camilo Cienfuegos and Argentinean Che Guevara. The political transformation brought about the corresponding consequences. Culture – music, visual arts, literature and dance – was promoted explicitly as a propaganda poster of the revolution. During approximately 50 years, the Cuban art scene developed in a closed society in which the artists of one generation trained those of the next.
ArteMorfosis is a gallery for Cuban art in Zurich. It organizes exhibitions regularly and presents an interested Swiss public, preferably with the work of contemporary artists whose work is recognized in Cuba and has obtained international success, but is still to be discovered in German-speaking Europe.
