The focus of West Encounters East is to rethink the significance of cultural exchange and diversity in contemporary society by identifying emerging and mid-career Latin American artists of Asian heritage. The Pavilion will show the work of contemporary Argentine artists Valeria Yamamoto, Ary Kaplan Nakamura, Guillermo Ueno, and Lucila Heinberg.

"It's a natural evolution of Brickell Gallery Night's mission to introduce emerging artists with Asian roots to the West," Ms. Holmes said. "For me, the emphasis is the fusion of the two traditions. I think of it as Artists Without Borders – a beautiful way that we can learn from each other through a meaningful exchange of culture."

Lecture Saturday 26, 5:30 – 7, at Arteaméricas Auditorium
Anna Kazumi Stahl, Ph.D. will lecture on Saturday, March 26 about “Keys to the Japanese Way of Being and Seeing: Literature and Art as Windows onto a Complex Interior”. Dr. Stahl is the daughter of a Japanese mother and a North American father of German descent. After a visit to Argentina in 1988 on an academic research grant, Kazumi Stahl began to focus more in the culture, language and history of Buenos Aires and its surroundings.
