‘La Habana’ Exhibition Features Works of Cuban-Born Photographer Victoria Montoro


The University of Miami School of Architecture presents “La Habana,” an exhibition of photographs by Victoria Montoro. The exhibit will be on display from July 7 to August 12, Monday through Friday, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the Korach Gallery of the Jorge M. Perez Architecture Center. A reception will be held on Wednesday, July 13 from 6 to 8 p.m. The reception is free and open to the public.

Cuban–born Victoria Montoro left Havana in 1961 and returned for the first time in 2008. The daughter of a former political prisoner, she calls the trip the most important of her life. It was a time for her to reconcile her memories from those invented ones or imagined ones acquired through the years. This body of work reveals how the buildings in La Habana have endured.
