At its core, tango is an elegant form of communication. Two dancers embrace and harness opposing energies to move as one. The Fernanda Ghi Dance Company (FGDC) fuses Argentine tango with other styles of dance to present the Boston premiere of Black + White, a theatrical dance performance that explores the concept of opposition in four acts: Love + Hate, Dream + Reality, Man + Woman, and Naked + Clothed. Choreographed by world-renowned tango artist Fernanda Ghi, Black + White features eight exceptional dancers moving to Astor Piazzolla’s famed music, with photographs by Andrés Mario de Varona.
(Washington DC) Latela Curatorial is proud to host Spiritual Wanderlust: an exhibition that explores modern day spirituality and its many interpretations. Featuring eight artists working within the realm of photography, the exhibit focuses on how these artists use the photographic medium to find, construct, and nurture their spiritual beings. Each artist navigates through spirituality’s many meanings to create a distinct spiritual perspective.
This exhibition is curated by Helen Criales, a Savannah College of Art & Design Alumni and 2019 Curatorial Assistant Apprentice at Latela Curatorial. Inspiration for this exhibit came from her travels and personal experiences. After experiencing personal trauma, she realized that she had been neglecting her spirituality. In Spiritual Wanderlust, she invites the viewer to reflect upon their own spiritual narrative.
