Full Description

Curtain is the catalog of the thought provoking exhibition by the artist Wilfredo Prieto, who represents the Cuban Pavilion at the 60th International Art Exhibition, La Biennale di Venezia. It’s a visual tour made of different works by the artist, which questions how we come to understand what is part of our reality. It is a matter of perspective, and a poetic gesture that highlights the weight of identity, its significance and the complexities surrounding integration and belonging. It proposes an analysis of reality that revolves around the interplay of opposites and varying levels of sensitivity: the tangible physical realm and the realm of representation, which serves as a metaphorical reflection of ourselves. For despite the many ways in which individuals think, feel and behave, we are part of the same thing.
