More than 15 years ago Gerardo Hernandez, Ramon Labanino, Antonio Guerrero, Fernando Gonzalez and Rene Gonzalez were framed and imprisoned on charges that included conspiracy to commit espionage and murder. They were sent to prison with sentences ranging from 15 years to double life.


They are known as the Cuban Five. Their crime was gathering information for the Cuban government on murderous Cuban American paramilitary outfits with a known history of violent attacks against Cuba.

This exhibition, Antonio Guerrero: “I Will Die the Way I’ve Lived” – features watercolours by one of The Five, Antonio Guerrero, for the 15th anniversary of their imprisonment.
