25 September - 7 November 2010. Cuban artist Carlos Garaicoa's work involves a dialogue between cities and their architecture. Born in 1967, Garaicoa presents new ways of interpreting urban society and buildings, through drawings, photographs and video installations.
With the exhibition End of Silence he has placed seven tapestries on the floor. The tapestries contain names of Havana shops which Garaicoa has altered to give totally different meanings. The exhibition is part of a body of work begun by the artist in 2006 made up primarily of photographs of neon signs from Havana's port area which now feature in the tapestry designs.
Tues-Fri. 16.00-22.00. Sat-Sun. 11.00-22.00.
