Museo del Ron Havana Club (Havana), May 14th - September 15th 2012
Coinciding with the 11th edition of the Havana Art Biennial, Havana Club International presents A Smell that Comes through my Window: Havana Cultura, the first exhibition showcasing the works resulting from the Havana Cultura Visual Arts Project's residency program.
The exhibition's title is rooted in Cuban popular culture and refers to what the neighbors are cooking. Since Cuban houses are not hermetically closed, kitchen smells frequently penetrate surrounding homes. Metaphorically, the expression "A Smell that Comes through my Window"speaks of what is coming up next. In the context of emerging art, it translates into forecasting new aesthetic and thematic trends among younger artists; what is being "cooked" in terms of art in Cuba.
