About The Farber Collection

The Farber Collection of contemporary Cuban art was launched in 2001 with a trip to Havana by collectors Howard and Patricia Farber. Previously, the Farbers had created major collections of American modernist art and contemporary Chinese art. Struck by the parallels between recent Chinese and Cuban art, they began assembling an ambitious and wide-ranging collection of contemporary Cuban art. With almost 200 works by Cuban-born artists, the Farber Collection encompasses the full scope of Cuban contemporary art history. The Collection features rarely exhibited works, some never before exhibited outside Cuba.

A selection of works in The Farber Collection are featured in the book Cuba Avant Garde: Contemporary Cuban Art from The Farber Collection which accompanied an exhibition of the same name, which toured U.S. museums in 2007 through 2010.
