Reportager award Recipient Joe Munro's trip to Cuba

Joe Munro, the first recipient of the Reportager Student Award has just embarked upon a trip to Cuba as a result of the bursary provided by Moleskine. Joe won the award in May this year and has spent the summer preparing for his trip.

For the past 50 years Cuba’s future has been embedded in global systems that have the ability to connect and disconnect them in surprising and complicated ways, which has effected the day to day lives of those inhabited there. My main intention for this project is to document and bear witness to particularly interesting aspects of Cuban lifestyle, industry and culture through a series of reportage driven, visual essays. My journey begins in Havana from where I will begin trickling my way down the south coast of the island until I reach Santiago. This project will recognise the value of documenting Cuba in its time-warped state as a result of its restricted trade laws since the Cold War. Despite the Embargo between the United States and Cuba not being lifted, it has been relaxed to allow import, export, and certain commerce between the two countries. I want to uncover stories and themes from local Cubans and communities about how this has affected their lifestyle and shaped the landscape around them. In such a landscape of interwoven narratives, I hope to be able to document this network of hidden stories and re-imagine the complex and contradictory realities of the present. Creating these drawings as a historical record and platform I hope to suggest the extraordinary future of this complex, unique country.

Chronicle: An Exhibition of Topolski Studio's Residents' Reportage Drawings

Private view Friday 3rd October 6.30pm at Topolski Studio Open to the public with drop-in family art activities: Saturday 4th and Sunday 5th October 10am-6pm Monday 6th 10am-5pm and Tuesday 7th October 10am-3pm

Topolski Studio and Reportager, University of the West of England, present the work of Edwood Burn, Luisa Crosbie, Pat Macdonald, Jack Miller, Jack Wheatley and Georgia Wilson, the Residents of the Chronicle Residency Programme, at Topolski Studio.

For Topolski Studio's Chronicle Residency Programme, six young artists reported local issues and events through drawing. They produced a hand-printed Chronicle, a broadsheet of reportage drawing, chronicling contemporary issues of the Twenty-First Century just as artist Feliks Topolski did of the Twentieth.


Sixty years since Topolski launched his Chronicles, Topolski Studio's Chronicle for the Twenty-First Century and accompanying reportage drawings of London will be exhibited alongside Feliks Topolski's original Chronicles and drawings, contrasting what Topolski recorded 50 and 60 years ago with what the young artists record today.

Topolski Studio is located behind the security barrier of the Southbank Centre around the back of the restaurant Ping Pong. For more information, please see: http://www.topolskicentury.org.uk/residency/exhibition/
