FILM SCREENING: TEA BY MARIO GARCIA TORRES
Perez Art Museum Miami and MDC's Tower Theater present Tea by Mario Garcia Torres with an introduction by the artist.
Tea is a film essay documenting artist Mario Garcia Torres's journey to One Hotel in Kabul, Afghanistan, a hotel opened in 1971 by Italian conceptual artist Alighiero Boetti (b. 1940-d.1994). The hotel closed due to the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan in 1979. Garcia Torres considers his relationship to Boetti's work and life through a subjective blurring of time and geography.
