Vital Lines Virtual Opening & Celebration
- This event has passed.
January 28 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Join us for a virtual opening celebration and program of Vital Lines / Líneas Vitales, a printmaking collaboration between artists in Cuba and the United States. In the spirit of solidarity, the Elizabeth Catlett Art Space and Printmaking Studio at The People’s Forum paired six Cuban artists and six US-based artists to make work based on themes connected to the life, energy, and liberation of the Cuban revolution.
The art initiative focuses on the ongoing significance and legacy of Cuban international solidarity and collaboration. Each artist pair was given a specific theme for their work based on the importance of Cuban revolutionary achievements. Those themes included friendship, future, struggle, liberation, sovereignty, and peace. Artists were invited to artistically collaborate, discuss, and debate across borders within their creative processes.
The exhibition and portfolio features works by Cuban artists Arístides Torres, Greta Acosta Reyes, Kalia León, Karla M. Gómez, Aldo Cruces, and Víctor Ubieta; and US-based artists Andrew Nance, Carolina Vega, Ian Matchett, Kimberly Villafuerte Barzola, vienna rye, and Vivek Venkatraman.
Artists’ original work was screen printed in limited editions in the Elizabeth Catlett Art Space & Printmaking Studio. An exhibition of the prints will be presented online and at The People’s Forum when it is safe to return to in-person programming. Sign up to receive the livestream link below!
