ARTE NO ES FÁCIL is a self-reflexive artwork based in creating relationships beyond pictures between Cuba and the United States. The project presents its final weekend of exhibitions exploring public presentation as a means of creating a more expansive discussion about art and current political realities. Collaborative works produced by pairings of emerging artists from Havana and Chicago will be presented on March 16th, 17th and 18th at Links Hall. Many Havana-based artists will be in attendance through cultural visas secured by ARTE NO ES FÁCIL, Linkshall and the MacArthur Foundation.
