Bihl Haus Arts presents "Cuerpo Cubano/Cuban Body" opening reception
“Cuerpo Cubano/Cuban Body” features the works of six artists: Painters Adrian Rumbaut and Elias Acosta, architects Camilo Villalvilla and Vladimir Rodriguez, and photographers Angel Pena and Omar G. Valenti. Through their work, the artists explore the human body, a frequent theme in Cuban art, from different perspectives and in different media, yet each is concerned with the act of being, of the future and the past, of the personal and the social. Their artistic concerns are formed from a rich panoramic of visions and endless dreams and challenges that revolve around the intersection of individual and the nation.
The opening reception includes live music by Cienfuegos of Austin (members are originally from Cienfuegos, Cuba), Cuban fare and libations. Three participants, artists Adrian Rumbaut and Elias Acosta and exhibition curator Liam Nodal, will visit from Cienfuegos.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through July 2.
