Co-curated by Amanda Bradley and Rene Morales chief curator at Pérez Art Museum Miami this new summer exhibit, Where There Is Power, is a very timely show given the political upheaval currently taking place in Cuba, Haiti and Venezuela. The headlining artists for the exhibit include Venezuelan artist Yucef Merhi who intercepted the emails of Hugo Chávez from 1998-2004 and has created wallpaper installations out of them. Cuban artist Rodolfo Peraza created IP addresses that track the blocking of information by the Cuban government, between Cuba and Miami, and demonstrates this censorship via pings on a map. Where There is Power also includes work by the late Asif Farooq, who over the course of eight years, recreated the Soviet-era MiG-21 jet fighter, down to the smallest detail, in true scale – entirely out of paper.
