DESCRIPTION

Art Auction to benefit the Sonando En Color Project

A Portion of the proceeds raised for this project will be used to enhance the technonolgical education of the children's art program at El Centro Experimental De Artes Visuales, the host gallery for the Sonando En Color Exhibit in Havana. The remainder of the funds raised will be used to support the exhibition and accompanying documentary.

The Sonando En Color Project will function as an artists panel discussion, art exhibition and video documentary in Havana, Cuba this May in conjunction with the Havana Biennial.

This project will examine the response tht Afro-Diasporan Artists have to the socio-cultural climate and history of Cuba. The Project seeks to explore the cultural footprint that contemporary Cuba has made on the world, how people of African descent have reacted to this influence, and how that information relates to the world's current socio-economic and political transitions.

Brooklyn Art Incubator is the organizer of this event. Brooklyn Art Incubator Inc. is a U.S. 501(c) 3 non-profit organization. Donations can also be made on the donation page of BROOKLYNARTINCUBATIOR.ORG
