As part of The Getty’s Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA, the Pasadena Museum of California Art’s new exhibit, Hollywood in Havana: Five Decades of Posters Promoting U.S. Films, displays American film posters made in Cuba between 1960 and 2009. Culled from Culver City-based Center for the Study of Political Graphic’s collection, the approximately 40 silkscreens of such movies as The Godfather, The Shining, Singin’ in the Rain, What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? and Silence of the Lambs – as well as a few Cuban movies – were created following the Cuban Revolution of 1959 and illustrate how, unlike Hollywood advertising, Cuban artists employed more minimal techniques inspired by Art Nouveau, abstract and Pop art styles.
