ACTnow with Harlem Quartet ft. Ilmar Gavilán & Aldo López Gavilán: Barriers to Entry: Music-Making Across the Geopolitical Divide • IN-PERSON
From themes of racial violence and cultural appropriation to multiculturalism and gender equality, the work of The Clarice's artists is complex, provocative and deeply sensitive. Arts Citizenship Talks (ACTnow) are opportunities to hear from these artists about the issues reflected in their works. These conversations are an invitation to act now!
For decades, siblings Aldo López Gavilán and Ilmar Gavilán sat on opposite sides of the US-Cuba feud. Despite their shared heritage and profession, the brothers remained estranged well into their adult lives, unable to traverse the vast geopolitical chasm separating the two nations. In this discussion, the Gavilán brothers and Harlem Quartet investigate musical collaboration between artists of countries with notoriously difficult relations. Featuring excerpts from their documentary Los Hermanos, the presentation will address the human consequences of this decades-old political crisis.
