Join ArtReview to discuss the work of the Cuban abstract group Los Diez Pintores Concretos (the Ten Concrete Painters) currently on show at David Zwirner, London, considering more broadly the emergence of concretism in Cuba during the 1950s.

Deputy editor Oliver Basciano will be in conversation with Abigail McEwen, an assistant professor with a PhD from the Latin American Art department of the Institute of Fine Arts at New York University. Her research focuses on the art of twentieth-century Cuba and Puerto Rico, and her book Revolutionary Horizons: Art and Polemics in 1950s Cuba, will be published by Yale University Press in 2016.
