Studio updates from the photo-collage artist Mark Guglielmo

Boston Show Options

CUBANEO is a new traveling exhibition of photo-mosaic murals, interviews, and field recordings by artist Mark Guglielmo set to a soundtrack of soulful Cuban music. Culled from dozens of audio interviews Guglielmo recorded and conducted in Spanish, diverse Cuban voices and perspectives are presented on portable mp3 players. The most attended show in the 40-year history of APE Gallery, it opened in Northampton, MA in June 2017.

A portal to Cuba, the mosaics measure up to 15 feet long and are handmade by taping together thousands of 4x6” photographs. Neither a computer nor Photoshop is used. A catalyst for conversations about some of the most important issues of our time, it travels to Villa Victoria Center for the Arts in Boston this October then to Cienfuegos and Trinidad, Cuba in February 2018.
