Americas Society presents Lydia Cabrera and Édouard Glissant: Trembling Thinking, focused on the ideas developed by the prominent Caribbean thinkers Lydia Cabrera (Havana, 1899-Miami, 1991) and Édouard Glissant (Sainte-Marie, Martinique, 1928-Paris, 2011). Organized in partnership with the Cuban Heritage Collection of the University of Miami.
For Cabrera and Glissant, thinking beyond narrow understandings of identities was a necessity. Their influence is projected through works of modern and contemporary artists documented in archival material: photographs, first editions by Cabrera and Aimé Césaire, letters to Cabrera from Roger Caillois, Pierre Verger, and María Zambrano, and notebooks and drawings by Cabrera and Glissant.
Associated public programs include an opening panel with the curators; a panel discussion with Katerina González Seligmann, Martin Tsang, and Christopher Winks; a film screening and discussion with director Manthia Diawara; and a book launch and conversation with Tania Bruguera and Hans Ulrich Obrist.

Curated by Hans Ulrich Obrist (Artistic Director of the Serpentine Galleries, London), Gabriela Rangel (Chief Curator and Director of Visual Arts, Americas Society), and Asad Raza (Artist).
