Marilyn Volkman & Danielle Paz, in collaboration with Amor Pirata
Arte No Es Fácil (Art Is Not Easy) is part of a Links Hall Artistic Associates festival. To learn more about this program, CLICK HERE.
Arte No Es Fácil is a project based in creating relationships beyond pictures between Cuba and the U.S. through the manifestation of art. The current phase of the project is a three –week interdisciplinary festival of performance and installation art, January – March 2012 at Links Hall. This series features collaborative works produced by pairings of emerging artists from Havana and Chicago, and explores public presentation as a means of creating a more expansive discussion about art and political realities. Artists from Havana and Chicago with similarities based in art-form, content or strategy collaborate on new works including performance art, video, social interventions, performed and written text, dance, photography and experimental music and sound works.
The co-creaters plan on remounting the festival in Havana later in 2012. For more information about the project, please visit www.artenoesfacil.com
