Student View Series | Carlos Garaicoa La enmienda que hay en mí (Making Amends)

As part of a new series for our blog, we have asked students from around the campus to share their perspectives on current exhibitions at USFCAM. We’d like to hear from a cross section of the student community, inside and outside the discipline of art. If you have thoughts you’d like to share, please let us know!

For our first interview, Biology and Psychology student, Lianet Vazquez, shares her thoughts on our current exhibition, La enmienda que hay en mí (Making Amends). The show, co-curated by Corina Matamoros of the National Museum of Fine Arts in Havana and IRA’s own Noel Smith, is a provocative look at Cuba by the Cuban born artist Carlos Garaicoa. In his work, Garaicoa is inspired by the architecture and culture of his native Havana. He explores issues relevant to international contemporary society including urbanism, politics, history and human rights.

Ms. Vazquez is a Cuban student here at USF, and in our video she takes a personal look at what the work represents, and provides a personal take on the message behind the art.
