Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.

There’s a lot out there about Cuban migration to Miami, but photographers like Josefina Tarafa endeavor to show us the nuances lost in the big-picture immigrant stories. In this posthumous exhibit, “Remaking Miami,” Tarafa’s detailed work chronicles the arrival of fellow Cuban immigrants during the 1970s. Culled from more than 150 original images, the exhibition’s 30 photographs serve to emphasize the relationship between these newcomers and their environment. Through Tarafa’s keen, anthropological eye, visitors will get to see a city in flux, transforming culturally, economically and socially at the hand of its new residents.

The exhibition opens November 5, 2020, and will remain on display through February 2021.
