Project Room: El Puente (The Bridge)
November 10, 2012 – January 5, 2013
In the project room we will exhibit El Puente (The Bridge), a video installation. In the projection we can see views of different cities from around the world. This piece is about migration as a phenomenon of the contemporary world. The bridge is an element that has been extensively used as a symbol of ‘crossing’ from a place to another, therefore an excellent image to represent the physical act of going places.
