Thursday, March 9th from 7-9:30pm join us at Centro Cultural Español Miami (CCE) for the Opening Reception of Letter from the Unknown by Angela Valella, the artist examines what might be referred to as arcane or archaic modes of communication and technologies, presenting the afterlife those yester years’ technologies has found in the visual arts. The exhibition comes to discuss issues of display and presentation as well as ideas of conservation and preservation.

Letter from Unknown (Woman) is a 1922 novel by Stephan Sweig that was the basis of the 1948 movie by the same name. The title is borrowed from the movie of that name. The exhibition explores the encounter between written text and the digital age-of forms of that represent a material desire for the past and our present means of communication. There will be a collection of first found written literary work and drawings by a writer whose work was never published together with the artist sculptures, installation, collages and video. The exhibition will be on view until April 28th.
