Coinciding with the Getty's SoCal-wide initiative Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA, the Annenberg Space for Photography's latest exhibit, "Cuba Is" (Sept. 9-March 4), explores various subcultures of contemporary Cubans "both on and off the island," from wealthy kids to young punks known as "Los Frikis" to "Chonga" girls in Miami. The more than 120 new and archival images are accompanied by a documentary, a virtual reality experience on Cuba's modern street-music scene and an additional outdoor display, "Violet Isle: A Duet of Photographs From Cuba." Among the nearly two dozen photographers is Cuban-born Leysis Quesada Vera, who, as part of the Annenberg's Iris Nights Lecture Series, discusses her work.
