“Exodus: Alternate Documents” Exhibition Opening at CCEMiami

“Exodus: Alternate Documents” Exhibition Opening at CCEMiamiSaturday, September 13, 7pm - Centro Cultural Español de Miami, 1490 Biscayne Blvd., Miami

An Open and Interactive Art Project for the Recovery of Collective Memory by Aluna Curatorial Collective. “Exodus: Alternate Documents” is a project of reflection on the phenomenon of emigration and large human displacements. The proposal of Aluna Curatorial Collective (Adriana Herrera & Willy Castellanos) starts with the creation of a setting that displaces the limits of documental photography or video, and transforms it into an open exercise for the recovery of collective memory, with the participation of Cuban immigrants in Miami, involved in the Exodus of 1994. Between August and September of that year, approximately 50,000 Cubans embarked towards the United States in precarious rafts built with their own mediums, in what constituted one of the most dramatic episodes of Cuban contemporary history.
