A must-see art show that will expand your concept of beauty!

During the Cuban Artists Fund’s artist-in-residence (2022), Rasua will create and show works that will be exhibited for the first time in New York. She’ll present one of her most characteristic works, “Con todo el gusto del mundo” (With All the Taste in the World), a series of beautiful unique objects and jewelry created with gold, silver, and the bodily waste of their owners; and her most recent project “Decorations,” drawings made with excrement and gold.

Cuba Introspettiva-Pratiche Intermediali e Videoarte.

Curated by Giacomo Zaza.
Flashback Habitat, Ecosystem for Contemporary Cultures
Turin, Italy.
Nov 3 – Dec 15 / 2022
Inauguration: Nov 2 / 2022

CUBA INTROSPETTIVA explores the multi-media practices from Cuba, opening an in-depth investigation dedicated to the experiences of single-channel video art, some of whom are little known in Europe but that are protagonists of the research within and without the island.

Twenty contemporary artists who have been active since the mid-nineteen
seventies are highlighting the introspective analytic gaze of art in Cuba: that particular attitude to look inside the identity, to encourage an imaginative journey, never given for granted or linear, which produces continuous deviations and transfigurations, thoughts and desires into cultural contexts.

An open and reflexive vision prevails in the artists in the exhibition, imbued with ironic, restless and amorphous traits. A vision in dialectic relationship to limits and contradictions, accompanied by the internalization of public and private Cuban history, with its scars and rooting, changes and transitions after the Revolution (1959). We obviously seize visual and linguistic codes that are different from one
another, linked to the different generations – for example, in the younger artists, a marked examination of reality, less enigmatic but structured and speculative, is detected.

The artistic practices in Cuba are moments that observe and discuss reality. They are never neutral or indifferent to the political, social and cultural frequencies. They show a strong explorative charge. They become a conscious experience of world’s multiplicity.

De donde crece la palma is a special collaboration between Havana Art Weekend and La Pera Projects that will present the work of young Cuban artists working inside and outside of Cuba.

This first capsule presents the artists Priscilla Aleman (Miami, 1991), Tatiana Mesa (Havana, 1981), and Grethell Rasúa (Havana, 1983), with a series of works resulting from processes of observation, compilation and reinvention, dialogues about the private and the public from intimate perspectives.
