ESMoA Experience #31: HOPE

September 17 – January 28, 2018

ESMoA HOPEEl Segundo Museum of Art presents Experience #31: HOPE, opening on Sunday, September 17 at 10 a.m. with an introduction by Curator Frency Fernandez, scheduled for 2 p.m.

HOPE explores the reciprocal influence of western and latin American video and new media art in Cuba. No other country has been so equally torn between love and hate, desire and neglect, isolation and reception, western and eastern ideologies. Indeed, the Caribbean island nation is so full of contradiction that it is no wonder it became a hotbed for contemporary and new media art. The richness and sheer number of Cuba’s facets grew from postmodern, neo-baroque, conceptual and minimalistic roots – to name just a few western influences.

Experience #31: HOPE, will run through January 28, 2018.
