Going Away Closer - Exposición Japón-Cuba

Exhibition / Cuba
March 9, 2018 - April 28, 2018
  Centro de Arte Contemporáneo Wifredo Lam
Havana San Ignacio #22, esq. a Empedrado, Habana Vieja 

The works of Japanese artists have occasionally been shown in Cuba through events such as the Havana Biennial, but this is the first exhibition to present a substantial collection of Japanese contemporary art. Rather than simply feature works by artists living in modern-day Japan, the exhibition is created through dialogue and collaboration between Japanese and Cuban curators, and with Japanese artists working together with Cuban artists and local communities. It presents mainly new works—including paintings, photographs, videos, and installations—by seven Japanese (and ACC alumna Yuko Mohri is one of the artists) and four Cuban artists at Cuba’s leading contemporary art museum, Centro de Arte Contemporáneo Wifredo Lam. The exhibition will travel to Tokyo, Japan in June, after it wraps up in Cuba.

Grantee: Mohri Yuko
