UPCOMING SHOWS

Ballet Beyond Borders: Cuban Contemporary Art from the Inside and the Outside

with Vicky A Clark
Thursday, August 12 — Talk begins at 6 PM

This event is part of the Ballet Beyond Borders four day festival August 11-14, 2021. For information on more events during BBB visit https://www.rmbt.org/bbb-index#/bbb-schedule
Thursday, August 12 // 6 PM

Cuba is a Caribbean island with a unique political backdrop. The island mentality, and especially its relationship to Florida, create a unique environment characterized by ideas of displacement, home, identity, and more. Its art reflects its position as a crossroads and a melting pot, reflecting a fascinating cultural setting where intersections and separations speak volumes.

Eclectic and quirky, Vicky A Clark, PhD, (independent curator, critic, professor) has been part of the Pittsburgh art scene for over 40 years. She grew up in the Southern California of the Beach Boys but self-identifies as a child of the sixties. Seeking to reconcile those formative experiences, her life has unfolded in expected and marvelous ways. Always situated in the margins, starting with a dissertation on illustrated late medieval astrological manuscripts, she has a consuming interest in how others navigate the unknowable and the intangible. She met BBB in Pakistan as participants in an art festival and is looking forward to adding a visual arts component to their programs.
