Washington Project for the Arts (WPA) and Foreign Policy In Focus are excited to announce a public talk with Wendy Navarro, an independent art critic and curator currently based in Barcelona, Spain. Since the mid 1990s, Navarro has been an active curator at the Visual Art Development Center (CDAV) in Havana, Cuba, while working as an editor of the magazine ArteCubano, and lecturing about Cuban contemporary art at the Higher Institute of Art (ISA) and Havana University.
Navarro visits DC as part of Information Exchange, an informal partnership between WPA and the International Studio and Curatorial Program (ISCP) in Brooklyn, New York. Information Exchange brings international curators in residence at ISCP to DC to present recent and upcoming projects. By bringing international curators to DC, WPA hopes to initiate challenging conversations and provide a forum for the discussion of global perspectives on contemporary art.
