Lotería Cubana is a project highlighting the existing differences between traditions within Hispanic cultures. Cuban culture is often overlooked by being labelled as Hispanic or some other nationality. However, as a Cuban artist, I wanted to emphasize how this can undermine the richness and uniqueness of my heritage within the Hispanic community. I did this in Lotería Cubana by Cubanizing the card game which the name refers to. While I am proud to call myself a Hispanic/Latina woman, I also wish that all Hispanic cultures were celebrated individually for their beauty and richness rather than being categorized within one big umbrella.
More photos of this project are coming!
