After being exhibit at the Abierto x Obras (Matadero, Madrid), the Centre D’Art La Panera (Lleida), Fondazione Cini (Biennale di Venezia) and Galleria Continua (San Gimignano) and as part of the XI Havana Biennale, Carlos Garaicoa will present for the first time in Cuba his installation, Fin de silencio/End of Silence. Images of department stores’ floors depicting their names in Havana that return to their original context transformed in big size tapestries.
“End of Silence” will be shown at Centro de Arte Contemporáneo Wifredo Lam, one of the Havana Biennale’s headquarters.
The presentation of a catalogue exclusively intended for this project will take place during the opening. It gathers the whole production process –which took several years- the different venues the work has been showed at until the completion of the work. The publication was kindly sponsored by the Brownstone Foundation and will include a text by Iván de la Nuez.
