Benefit and Exclusive Screening: Unfinished Spaces
Sunday, October 23, 2011
The 8th Floor welcomed Ricardo Porro, architect of Cuba’s National Arts Schools and Alysa Nahmias, co-director of Unfinished Spaces, for a discussion and Q & A after the screening. A hors d’oeurves and wine reception followed.
Cuba’s ambitious National Art Schools project, designed by three young architects in the wake of Castro’s Revolution, is neglected, nearly forgotten, then ultimately rediscovered as a visionary architectural masterpiece.
Hosted by Rachel Weingeist, Deputy Director, The Shelley & Donald Rubin Foundation, Warren A. James Architects + Planners and Alberto Magnan, Magnan Metz Gallery.
Special thanks to World Monuments Fund for facilitating Mr. Porro’s travel to New York.
