Childhood Memories from the Other Side of the Water

Next date: Apr 30, 2017 - click here for time schedule - English

MDC Museum of Art + Design presents Childhood Memories from the Other Side of the Water, a visual autobiography depicting childhood experiences and recollections of Cuba by artist Eduardo del Valle consisting of a new series of thought-provoking photographs never exhibited before.

Independently over the past nine years, Eduardo del Valle has worked on a visual autobiography of his experiences and observations central to his childhood, his recollections of Cuba between 1951 to 1961, when he left the country of his birth at the age of ten, never to return. The photographic series Childhood Memories from the Other Side of the Water portrays certain aspects of the artists’ memories that have stayed with him, wedged deep at the far end of his recollection, aspects that have challenged del Valle forever in an unfading fashion. The project culminated into 88 autobiographical photographs, recreating memories shot entirely outside of the island.

The Biennale of Moving Images

Sunday, Apr 30, 2017 from 3:00 PM to 9:00 PM - English

A selection of highlights from the biennial will be installed in non-traditional spaces in the Faena District and will be accompanied by a robust open air screening program in the patio of the Faena Bazaar as well as in the Faena Hotel screening room.

Originally created for The Centre d’Art Contemporain Genève under the artistic direction of Andrea Bellini in collaboration with Cecilia Alemani, Caroline Bourgeois and Elvira Dyangani Ose, the Biennale of Moving Images is a one-of-a-kind hybrid event bringing together visual artists, film directors and performers. Seeking to investigate new exhibition models and formats by building a show as a choir, the exhibit brings polyphonic voices together, offering a window into contemporaneity.

This marks the 15th edition of the Biennale of Moving Images and the first time that it will be presented in the United States. Comprising a wide array of multimedia installations, films and documentaries usually shown in cinemas, the Biennale of Moving Images is situated somewhere between a cinema festival, a constellation of solo video installations and a site for research and experimentation. Within this format, artists are invited to push the boundaries of traditional media. The biennial will offer a diverse program of special screenings and talks.

The Exile Experience: A Journey to Freedom

Next date: Apr 30, 2017 - click here for time schedule - English

The Exile Experience: Journey to Freedom is a pictorial account of the struggles that the Cuban exile community has endured since Fidel Castro's rise to power, and the successes they have achieved in the United States. Having covered the Cuban exile community and its struggle for freedom extensively throughout the years, Miami Dade College and The Miami Herald Media Company now present this journalistic chronology, which showcases the spirit and accomplishments of the Cuban American community. The permanent exhibition is housed at the College’s National Historic Landmark Freedom Tower, itself central to the story of Cubans in the United States.

MDC’s Freedom Tower was operated by the U.S. Government as a reception center for Cuban refugees from 1962 to 1974. “The building is significant because it represents the important story of the Cuban exodus to America and resettlement during the Cold War,” reports the U.S. Department of the Interior, which has also called the Freedom Tower the “Ellis Island of the South.” Though it operated in that capacity for only 12 years, the building has become an icon representing the faith that democracy brought to troubled lives, the generosity of the American people and a hopeful beginning that assured thousands a new life in a new land.
