Cubaneo: Gallery Opening
Artist and producer visited Cuba three times, each time capturing the impact of such historic moments as the year after President Obama’s landmark trip and two months after the death of Fidel Castro. Returning to the states with thousands of photographs and dozens of interviews from locals, Guglielmo constructed large mosaics with his own two hands and combined the perspectives and voices into this visual and auditory exhibition. This work pays homage to the rich culture of this isolated island and serves as a conversation piece for one of the most important topics of this time.
There will also be a panel discussion featuring the artist, Mark Guglielmo, and curator, David Guerra, on Thursday, October 19th. Guerra is a lawyer and an independent curator based in Boston. He studied law at the University of Havana, Oxford and Harvard University. David founded A R E A in 2016 as an alternative to the contemporary art gallery, active in both the primary and secondary markets. A R E A is an interdisciplinary space to celebrate art, design, and architecture. His passion for innovation in the arts has led him to collaborate on a variety of projects and exhibitions as a photographer and curator in Boston.
