On the occasion of the 55th International Art Exhibition - la Biennale di Venezia, the commissioner Miria Vicini, assigned two international curators, Jorge Fernández Torres and Giacomo Zaza, with designing a wide-ranging exhibition, about contemporary art in Cuba regarding current practices and in line with the dialogue and with the complexity of the visions carried out by the International Art Exhibition - la Biennale di Venezia.
The invited artists will act inside The National Archeological Museum located in Piazza San Marco in Venice, leading to reflections in balance between past, present and future. They will open boundaries exceeding the “linguistic fences” in order to place themselves in the middle of different thematic areas: the relationship between power and information, the fragmentation of the sign and the mediatic use of images, the procedural and phenomenic stadiums, the philosophical thought and the initiation rituals of orgiastic matrix. Their works will lead us through enigmatic and “threatening” territories, and through the iconic flow of exasperated life, marginalized by the system. From Liudmila & Nelson’s artwork, from the installation titled 53+1= 54+1=55. La letra del Año by María Magdalena Campos & Neil Leonard, to the pieces by Gilberto Zorio and Wang Du, Pedro Costa and Rui Chafes, to site specific installation by Glenda León (Música de las esferas), Tonel, Lázaro Saavedra, H.H. Lim and experiences by Sandra Ramos, Hermann Nitsch, and Francesca Leone.
