Gustavo Acosta. THERE: Postcards from Havana THERE: Postcards from Havan a is a historical survey of works done throughout the artist's career based on the city of Havana. Acosta depicts views of the city in which its uniqu e profile emerges like snapshots seen through the filters of time. The seri es of works represents the artist's intent to connect the past and present of this iconic city\, which was his home. Postcards were historically used as a quick communication or to send greetings to those back home from a rom anticized destination which the sender was visiting.Unfortunately\, the wid espread use of internet has rendered such modes of communication practicall y obsolete\, thus postcards have become more of a relic of the past and an oddity to be collected. Acosta uses this transition as a way of reinforcing a connection with the past. Formally he uses “technical resources” such as colors similar to those used in old times to hand-color postcards.The seri es can also be associated with memories and dreams\, that fleeting time bet ween dusk and dawn when a city sleeps. The piece Memory Lane\, best represe nts these concepts as it illustrates the artist taking a mental trip to the past \, to the Havana that he left more than 20 years ago. This exhibition is in a way a counterpart to his last solo show in 2011 titled Here\, in w hich he painted views of Miami\, the city where he lives now. While Here is a recording of his current place\,There becomes a recorded view of the pas t.
