Event Description

The party in the spirit of Latin American art in Los Angeles is not over – both the VIP Opening and After Party is going to be in the form of the pop-up exhibition, The Future Moves Slow, set in Schoos Night Gallery. Woven together by art that shows the intricate diplomatic relationship between the United States and Cuba, Psychitecture Magazine in collaboration with Artists in Mind and the award-winning Schoos Design will be showing a collection of works by artists who were founders of the Cuban Abstract movement in the 1950’s to Contemporary Cuban art. With the political spin, the gallery aims to spark a discussion that buttresses a healthy relationship between the two countries that have a long-shared history with one another.

Renowned artists that will be attending the exhibition: Robert Toledo and Damian Aquiles. Featured artists include: Miguel Machado, Ruben Rodriguez, Vladimir Sagols, Salvador Corratge, Cuty Ragazzone, Liudmila & Nelson, and Orestes Hernandez.

Each artist brings a spin on the vibrantly rich country of Cuba and the strong spirit of its people. Some artists like Orestes Hernandez integrate bright and vivid colors to exude the colorful culture and controversial issues of Cuba while others take a different approach, such as Damian Aquiles who uses recycled metals, canvas, and plastic to create art with an environmental theme in mind. All the works of art push the political and social issues of Cuba into the spotlight for intellectual thought and discussion all the while bringing an appreciation for the diverse talent of the people.

The film Havana Libre, directed by Corey Mclean, is an in-depth study of the dream of artists and athletes to legitimize the sport of surfing in Cuba. The surfing story is carried by other themes and concepts in the film such as resistance to change and the young generation creating bridges of communication despite dangerous ravines of uncertainty and danger. Seth Brown, Marco Bava and Tyler Dunham’s photographic series is informed by the evolving story of Cuba’s underground surf culture struggling to legalize their sport. The Makewild images evoke a feeling of American familiarity, yet the melancholic uncertainty of realizing something here is different – something uniquely Cuban.
