At VAEA we celebrate the work of @laraalcantara born in Caracas the photographer lives in #newyork since several years and her body of work produced during pandemic times got the attention of curators and galleries, the images are recent work currently on view at @nohrahaimegallery In FEELING THE PANDEMIC, Alcantara boldly steps into the world of “the housewife” using familiar spaces to depict clever, dreamy scenarios injected with humor and sarcasm. One such work, Escape to Nowhere, 2020, captures the artist fleeing isolation using a never-ending rope of laundry. Determination is countered by disappointment as she ironically finds herself landing on the balcony of her own apartment. Congratulations Lara #venezuelantalent #contemporaryphotography

Louise Gluck, Premio Novel de Literatura 2020 🇺🇸

Semejanza final

La última vez que vi a mi padre ambos hicimos lo mismo.

El estaba parado en la puerta de su habitación,

esperando que yo acabase de hablar por teléfono.

Que él no estuviera pendiente a su reloj

era una señal de que quería conversar.

Conversar para nosotros siempre significó lo mismo.

El decía algunas palabras, yo decía unas de vuelta.

Y en eso consistía.

Casi terminaba agosto, hacía mucho calor, mucha humedad.

Al lado los trabajadores arrojaban gravilla fresca en la marquesina.

Mi padre y yo evitábamos estar solos;

No lográbamos conectarnos, hablar por hablar.

Era como si no existieran

otras posibilidades.

Así que esta era especial: cuando un hombre se esta muriendo,

hay de que hablar.

Debe haber sido temprano en la mañana. De un lado a otro de la calle

los aspersores empezaron a funcionar. El camión del jardinero

apareció al final de la cuadra

hasta que se detuvo para estacionarse.

Mi padre quería contarme cómo era eso de morirse.

Dijo que no estaba sufriendo.

Dijo que se había quedado esperando el dolor, aguardando, pero nunca vino.

Lo único que sentía era una especie de debilidad.

Le dije lo mucho que me alegraba, que me parecía que tenía suerte.

Algunos de los maridos se subían a sus carros para ir al trabajo.

No gente que conociéramos. Nuevas familias,

familias con niños pequeños.

Las amas de casa se paraban en la marquesina, gritando o haciendo ademanes.

Nos dijimos adiós como acostumbrábamos,

Sin abrazarnos, nada dramático.

Cuando el taxi vino, mis padres lo observaron desde la entrada,

Agarrados de las manos, mi mamá tirando besos como suele hacer,

ya que le molesta cuando una mano no se está usando.

Pero por primera vez, mi padre no sólo se quedó parado ahí.

Esta vez saludó.

Eso mismo hice yo en la puerta del taxi.

Como él, saludé para esconder el temblor de mi mano.

We are pleased to announce that architect @hermanebner & @luismille just finished render for @vaearts entrance. The first floor lobby and staircase welcomes visitors to a contemporary atmosphere with a particular design; the stair railings and the ceiling at the first floor are characterized by a parametric geometry of organic shapes. As a witness to the modern use of the historic building, the geometry of these architectural elements responds to the requirements to preserve the existing structure of the stairs.

In the case of the ceiling, a suspended system is to be constructed with prefabricated molded cement fiber panels, 3D printed, with smoothed plaster finish and matte-finish water-based paint. The stair railings, will be treated in a similar harmonious style.

A sculptural work designed for the space by visual artist Luis Mille IG @luismille) will be installed, which will occupy the geometry created by the rising runs of stairs, rising to the second floor and occupying an important section of the west wall of space. We welcome Luis’s extraordinary sculpture a permanent installation for VAEA New Rochelle Art Collection.
