This year the Contemporary Arts Museum Houston and the Spelman College Museum of Fine Art were selected to present the exhibition, Cinema Remixed & Reloaded: Black Women Artists and the Moving Image Since 1970, at the 11th Havana Biennial from May - June, 2012. In 2008, the critically acclaimed exhibition was nominated for an Association of International Art Critic's award in digital media and video. "This exhibition will mark the first presentation of a curatorial team from the United States included as a participant in the main program of the Biennial," said Biennial director Jorge Fernández.
The Havana Biennial is one of the longest running biennials with a concentration on art from Latin America, the Caribbean, Africa, and Asia as well as a wealth of projects by Cuban artists. The goal of this year's Biennial is to "bring art to all." Projects were mounted throughout the city in parks, city squares, art organizations, and within experimental venues. Watch the slideshow above for a glimpse of the festivities, brought to us by CAMH Senior Curator Valerie Cassel Oliver.
