STEVEN DAIBER/ RED TRILLIUM PRESS

Massachusetts/Cuba

 

Steve Daiber Red Trillium Press

Steve Daiber/Red Trillium Press

Over the past decade, Red Trillium Press has had the good fortune to work in printmaking studios in Hanoi, Vietnam and Havana, Cuba. As a result, his firsthand knowledge of the United States and Cuba’s intertwined, troubled history empowers and contributes a sense of urgency to the work of Red Trillium Press. The individual books and book collaborations with Cuban artists, created during and after visits to Cuba, tell stories of Cubans’ lived reality in the twenty-first century. These are juxtaposed with Daiber’s acute observations as an outsider, contemplating individual Cubans caught in the international political milieu.
