William Hendricks - ProofPrueba, Cuba-Nothing Personal
Opening Reception: Saturday, January 15, 2011 3-5pm
This exhibition, PROOFPRUEBA, looks at the complexities of the seemingly simple lives of contemporary Cubans as they stand in the shadow of their extraordinary past.
The photographs presented in this exhibition are blended together with the verses of Cuban writer Orlando Hernandez. Together they articulate the realities and sur-realities of Castro's Island Nation, while deepening our sense of the pains and pleasures that are the true texture of current Cuban existence.
