Videocreation: Animated Forms

Saturday, April 22
9:00am to 11:30am
CERIA Room 365

We’re thrilled to be joined by esteemed scholars and curators from Cuba this year! Magaly Espinosa and Caridad Blanco de la Cruz will conduct a discussion-based workshop studying issues raised in their formal presentations and curated film programs.

(Screens Wednesday, April 19th, 6:45pm at the Guild Cinema, 3405 Central Ave NE)
This program presents work of Cuban visual artists using animation as a form of creative expression. Films in this program will range from the 1960s to the 1990s. Today in Cuba, animation is used in video art, public health messages, animated films, documentaries, video installations, network art, nteractive artworks, video games, cinematographic productions of various types, and also for visual effects, mapping, and audiovisual performances. Combining animation with other artistic practices, creators have redefined its possibilities and meaning.

Caridad Blanco de la Cruz is a curator, art critic and researcher. She is a specialist at the Center for the Development of Visual Arts (CDAV). Member of the National Union of Cuban Writers and Artists (UNEAC) and the International Association of Art Critics (AICA), Cuba.

This program foregrounds the work of Cuban artists from different generations who in the last decade have experimented with topics inspired by everyday life and popular culture. The films explore elements of ethnographic character, economic issues, and ideological and political borders. This moving-image pilgrimage gives a glimpse into artists as conduits with a special quality as narrated from a personal and “lived” position.
