DESCRIPTION

The Last of The Mojitos is the second in the summer series of exhibitions by emerging Bay Area Artists. This exhibition is based on a collective journey that 13 artists took to the 25th anniversary of the Havana Biennale, which coincided with the 50th anniversary of the Cuban revolution.

The project led by Tony Labat has produced artworks that where inspired, created, performed and conceived while on the island. The artist also considered the recent shift of the political global landscape since the inauguration of Obama as the new American leader and reflects on the long overdue dialogue about our relationship (or lack of) to the island, to ideas, to tolerance, and cultural and political differences, and its impact on history and memory.

The exciting exhibition includes works in photography, video, sculpture and sound as well as documentation of performances done in Havana, an 80-page full color catalog will be available. Participating artists include: Natasha Agrama, Peter Belkin, Lena Daly, Maggie Dilley, Mercedes Dorame, Jennifer Elmore, Luis Garcia, Alexandra Johnston, Rebecca Kopp, Lauren Kronemyer, Tony Labat, Whitney Legge, Rebecca Parks-Ramage and Allison Taylor 80-page full color catalog will be available.
