Esterio Segura's first U.S. museum exhibition on view at the Museum of Latin American Art
Based in Cuba, Segura creates work that addresses topics of commercialization, migration, censorship and cultural isolation viewed from a contemporary Cuban perspective.

LONG BEACH, CA.- MOLAA is presenting the first solo U.S. museum exhibition of pioneering contemporary artist Esterio Segura. This is the first comprehensive survey of his work at a museum outside of Cuba since his 1999 exhibition Espacio ocupado por un Sueño/Space Occupied by a Dream at Centro Wifredo Lam in Havana.

Stuart A. Ashman, MOLAA’s President and CEO stated, “We are very pleased to host this exhibition highlighting the work of one of Cuba’s most informed artists whose work clearly demonstrates how Cuban artists have entered the mainstream of the contemporary art world despite the political barriers that isolate them.”

Based in Cuba, Segura creates work that addresses topics of commercialization, migration, censorship and cultural isolation viewed from a contemporary Cuban perspective. Utilizing a variety of media; from drawing and painting to sculpture, photography and installation, he reflects upon contemporary Cuban anxieties. Segura delivers his social critique with humor and satire, at times evoking controversy. Embracing pop culture, Afro-Cuban influences, religious iconography and eroticism, he celebrates the beauty and ingenuity of the island while challenging the absurdity of the barriers that isolate and separate its people.

Esterio Segura studied at the prestigious Instituto Superior de Arte (ISA) of Cuba where he also taught professionally. He has had solo exhibitions in Havana, Berlin, London and New York, and has participated in group exhibitions in Argentina, Canada, Costa Rica, Ecuador, France, London, Mexico and Spain. His works can be found in numerous museum collections including the Museum of Modern Art in New York, Arizona State University Art Museum, Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes in Cuba, Bronx Museum of the Arts in New York, the Latin American Art Museum of the University of Essex, and the Museum of Latin American Art.
