Goal

To launch an artist exchange program that brings together Cuban artists from Havana and Miami to present exhibitions, in partnership with a local university.

To create an artistic dialogue, this project will launch an exchange initiative between Cuban and Cuban-American artists through a series of programs and exhibitions in Miami and Havana. The goal is to provide an opportunity for dialogue and exchange and discussion of issues that include artistic practices, cultural identity and the art market as they relate to the realities of living and creating in distinct social contexts. Subsequently, an exhibition project in both cities will highlight collaborative works that result from these exchanges. Academic institutional partners include The University of Miami's Cuban Theater Digital Archive, Department of Modern Languages and Literatures and the Miami Observatory on Communication and Creative Industries in addition to Florida International University's Cuban Research Institute.
