|The focus ofÂ 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 â€“ a beautiful way that we can learn from each other through a meaningful exchange of culture."
