Wild Noise: Clifton, 2010 by Huma Bhabha; Karachi, Pakistan Ink on C-print with collage

Exhibition, El Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes, Havana, Cuba, until 6 August
The Bronx Museum of the Arts and El Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes de La Habana (MNBA) have announced an unprecedented joint arts initiative that is the culmination of years of planning and collaboration. Featured are works created from the 1960s to the present that reveal how contemporary artists are addressing questions of identity, urban life, and community. More than 100 works from the Bronx Museum’s permanent collection are on view. The title – Wild Noise – is taken from a Victor Hugo poem, “Ma vie est déjà dans l’ombre de la mort”, and refers to the sublimity and chaos of urban spaces, the wild noise where infinity begins.
