(What are we and what will we be but a single story, a single idea, a single will for all time?)

In our hyper-globalized world, what does it mean to be isolated?

Fractured, organic, inconsistent and complex; the narrative of Cuba is difficult to define.

 The legacy of the embargo and the revolution, however, is clearer. The Cuban people have been asked to sacrifice for over 50 years. Waiting, forever waiting, for a dream they once held. For the younger and increasingly impatient generation, it is a distant one.

The undeniable result of such sacrifice, perpetually demanded, is a survivalist culture, for better and for worse. We experienced first hand the results: suspicions of outsiders, aggressive hustling, individualistic mentality, yet warmth, strong community, and the most ingenious motorized vehicles on the planet. Cuba is a dynamic and complicated place.

In 2012, a group of ten artists traveled to Havana, Cuba to witness the Habana Bienal. This exhibition represents an accumulation of their experiences, but is by no means comprehensive of the story of Cuba.
