La Habana: Jorge Villareal

Jorge Villarreal presents La Habana: A Documentation of Cuba
Opening Reception Saturday March 5, 2016
Warehouse Space, 1119 S St Mary’s
San Antonio, TX 78204
Jorge Villarreal takes an invitation from texture and color to connect to the culture and way of life in Cuba. His relationship is incredibly personal, deepened by his visitation of the area year after year since 2010.
Villarreal documents a tactile economic downturn historically, with contrasting bright color of pure life movement.
The stories that make up La Habana are shared as an intimate dialogue, exposing the unfamiliar rituals of the folklore of Cuba through a permeation of the streets.
Villarreal has been presented in three solo exhibitions, and a part of several group shows in San Antonio, Miami and New York.
Exhibition co-organized by Faith Haddad, Haus Collective.
