The first UK showing of two recent works by Gerrard consolidates his reputation as one of the most innovative artists working today. Cuban School (Community 5th of October) 2010 and Cuban School (Sancti Spiritu) 2011 are meticulous slow-moving virtual portraits of schools constructed in the 1960’s Cuban countryside that are now decaying functional ruins. Both works are infinite in duration based on a continuous real-time 365-day solar cycle, and powerfully mark the melancholic demise of a political vision. Curated by AV Festival in partnership with mima. UK Premiere.mima
