|Awakening ― Where Are We Standing? ― Earth, Memory and Resurrection
August 10 – October 27, 2013
While reflecting on arts in the wake of the 2011 East Japan Earthquake, the coming second Aichi Triennale, “Awakening – Where Are We Standing? – Earth, Memory and Resurrection”, will bring together from within and outside Japan cutting-edge contemporary arts, performing arts including dance and theater, and operas which manifest and resonate with the socio-political reverberations occurring in various areas of the world.
Aichi Triennale accommodates both contemporary art and stage performances, which is one of its unique features. Art works which traverse different genres will be eagerly pursued to encourage lovers of both art and performing arts to easily encounter arts outsides their preferred genres.
Guerra de la Paz is the composite name that represents the creative team efforts of Cuban born artists, Alain Guerra (Born: 1968 Havana, Cuba) and Neraldo de la Paz (Born: 1955 Matanzas, Cuba. Live and work in Miami, Florida) and have been consistently producing collaboratively since 1996.
Based on a combination of traditional disciplines and experimentation with dimension and the use of unconventional materials, Guerra de la Paz work is inspired by an essential familiarity with found ready-made objects; whose archeological qualities and encapsulated energies expose the significance of the human footprint while revealing underlying psychosocial and environmental messages.
Guerra de la Paz work has been exhibited in biennales, museums and galleries as well as other unconventional venues internationally including: The Aichi Triennale – Nagoya, Biennale Internationale du Lin du Portneuf – Quebec, The Saatchi Gallery – London, Miami Art Museum, Art Museum of the Americas – Washington DC, Americas Society – NYC, Chicago Cultural Center, 21c Museum, Louisville, KY, Southeast Center for Contemporary Art, Winston-Salem, NC, John Michael Kohler Arts Center, WI, El Museo Universitario de el Chopo – Mexico City, The Prague Quadrennial of Performance, Design and Space – CZ, and most recently, Federation Square – Melbourne AU.
