Quarantine: 40 Days and 40 Nights
A Photographic Series by Geandy Pavón
December 1st, 2020 – February 4th, 2021
Community Meeting Room
Simple elements, such as the use of flashlights and hand-cut cardboard props, helped the couple reenact art history classics; re-interpret popular religious rituals; and ultimately produce a brand-new imagery that chronicles life in Modern-day pandemic.
Unfolding historical moments have threaded their way through the narrative. In addition to the body of photographs in the exhibition, Pavón created process videos to further narrate some of these moments. Visitors will also enjoy a soundtrack by renowned musician Paquito D’Rivera, created specifically for the exhibition. The soundtrack is comprised of two versions of the iconic La Bella Cubana, written by Afro-Cuban 20c composer, José Lafitte White.
This exhibition arrives at the Coral Gables Museum from the Art Museum of the Americas in Washington, D.C. where it was exhibited virtually.
