The Montreal~Habana Exchange is a project that creates dialogue among contemporary artists in a Canadian and Cuban context. The first series of events and exhibitions took place in Montreal in the spring of 2019 while the second unfolds in Havana from October-December, 2019.

In addition to presenting a series of performative dinners (see announcement below) I will also be showing performance documentation in two of the exhibition spaces during the Cuban component of the exchange project.

In Avecez Art Space, curator Solveig Font presents A QUIEN PUEDA INTERESAR, a three-person exhibition with myself, Maria Ezcurra and Helena Martin Franco. This is the second iteration of her exhibition by the same title that previously featured Havana-based artists Jenny Brito, Camila R. Lobón, Alina Águila, Celia+Yunior, and  Julio Llopiz-Casal.

At the Centro de Desarrollo de las Artes Visuales in Old Havana a larger group show features wall-works, sound installation and a video program that includes Montreal artists: Adam Basanta, Carl Trahan, Caroline Monnet, Cathy Sisler, Danny Perrault, Diane Obomsawin, Estela Lopez Solis, Frédéric Lavoie, Gwenaël Bélanger, Helena Martin Franco, Jenny Lin, Karen Trask, Kim Kielhofner, Kimura Byol, Manon Lebrecque, Maria Ezcurra, Michel de Brouin, Moridja Kitenge Banza, Nadia Myre, Nathalie Bujold, Nathalie Lemoine, Nik Forrest, Rachel Echenberg, Renée Lavaillante, Skawennati, Sylvie Laliberté, Yudi Sewraj (and yours truly).
