Tag 3 in Island 🇮🇸 Hallo 👋🏼 Heute war ich bei einer Walbesichtigung! Es waren zwei Wale und mehrerer Delphine im Wasser 💦 🐬 🐋
Allerdings war es unmöglich mehr zu sehen als den Rücken der Tiere! Nicht nur weil die Tiere schnell wieder untergetaucht sind sondern auch weil so viele Menschen durch ihre Handys und Fotoapperate die Sicht komplett verdeckt haben.
Sehr schade, dass vieles nur noch durch die Kamera angesehen wird 😭
Allerdings hat mich dieser wunderschöne Regenbogen über dem Meer entschädigt! 🥰🌈 Den Rest des Tages habe ich genutzt um zur Ruhe zu kommen, dass ich neue Kraft für den Tag morgen habe!

Day 3 in Iceland 🇮🇸 Hello 👋🏼 Today I was at a whale watching! There were two whales and several dolphins in the water 💦 🐬 🐋
However, it was impossible to see more than the back of the animals! Not only because the animals are quickly submerged again but also because so many people have completely obscured the view through their mobile phones and cameras.
It's a pity that many things are only seen through the camera 😭
However, this beautiful rainbow over the sea has compensated me! 🥰🌈 The rest of the day I used to get some rest, that I have new strength for the day tomorrow!

“The Havana-Miami art scene has always been dynamic, with artists arriving over the years at different points in their career, and even growing up and going to school in Miami. So Cuban artists have been very dominant in the community.
There are so many artists to name. But to limit it to the Miami scene, certainly masters like Cundo Bermúdez, Manuel Carbonell, and Rafael Soriano have made their mark. And now another generation of recognized artists—like José Bedia, Carlos Luna, Demi and Arturo Rodríguez, Gory, María Martínez-Cañas, María Brito, María Lino (to name a few)—are joined by emerging artists like Jorge Ríos, Aurora Molina, Leonor Anthony, and Rafael Domenech.
There is incredible exchange, respect, and dialogue among the many artists, most of whom find a Miami exhibition to be a feather in their cap. I am always impressed with exhibitions’ opening receptions, where the artists all come to support their colleagues. It never seems to be competitive, but genuinely supportive.
There is a special spirit about Cuban art, and especially the artists. They have this great sense of survival that’s almost like a mission, and I admire that. Their use of materials is always extraordinary, and I find the art unique, without the baggage of art history’s classifications and movements. Cuban art is much broader in concept, with an independence that is very attractive.
My next projects will be about the women. One may be more historical, as I learned that there were many important artists in Cuba over the last hundred years who have been neglected. Another will be with a young Cuban woman just beginning a very exciting career.
I am also interested in women activist artists. We are busy organizing an exhibition with several Cuban women who work as political, social, and environmental activists, as a continuation of a project I did at Art Miami 2017.” ---- Carol Damian, who is retiring from a 25 year career as an Art History professor at FIU and the Founder, Director and Curator of the Frost Art Museum
MYSEUM INTERSECTIONS: RE-IMAGINING STORIES OF CARE-WORK.
For most people who live in Toronto, our knowledge about migrant caregivers is limited to the racialized women we see in parks, libraries, and other public spaces taking care of predominantly white Canadian children, or senior citizens.
Few of us know that caregivers have made invaluable contributions to Canada’s social, economic, and political history.
This collaborative storytelling and audio-visual art performance will re-vision the history of Care Work in Toronto. It will feature real-life stories of migrant caregivers accompanied by video art projection and electronic soundscapes.
To learn more about Re-Imagining: Stories of Care Work, as well as the other collaborative projects in this year’s Myseum Intersections festival, click the link in bio.
The Haggis (Alba Haggis) is the last remaining member of the Haggis family. Now extinct in the wild due to excessive hunting in the Scottish Highlands thanks to their reputation as a Scottish delicacy. They now exist only in specially made reserves away from the public eye.
This has lead to the now commonly held belief that the Haggis is not intact a real creature but rather the food gained from it is made up of bits of other animal products.
