Guerra de la Paz
Guerra de la Paz is the name of the artist duo of the Cuban born and Miami based artists, Alain Guerra (Havana, Cuba, 1968) and Neraldo de la Paz (Matanzas, Cuba, 1955). Their intense artistic collaboration, which started in 1996, is based on the combination of traditional disciplines and experimentation with dimension and the use of unconventional materials. Their work is inspired by an essential familiarity with found ready-made objects; whose archeological qualities and encapsulated energies expose the significance of the human footprint while revealing underlying psychosocial and environmental messages.
Their works have been exhibited in art fairs, galleries, museums and other nonconventional spaces at an international level: the Saatchi Gallery, London; the Miami Art Museum; the Art Museum of the Americas, Washington DC; Americas Society, NYC; the Chicago Cultural Center; the 21c Museum, Louisville, KY; the Southeast Center for Contemporary Art, Winston-Salem, NC; the John Michael Kohler Arts Center, Sheboygan, WI; El Museo Universitario de el Chopo, Mexico City; The Prague Quadrennial of Performance Design and Space, Prague; The Biennale Internationale du lin de Portneuf, Quebec, Canada; The Aichi Triennale, Japan and Zacheta National Gallery, Warsaw.
