The 2010 edition of InsideART focuses on the USFCAM exhibition Carlos Garaicoa: La enmienda que hay en mí (Making Amends). Inspired by the architecture and culture of his native Havana, Cuba, Garaicoa explores issues relevant to contemporary society including urbanism, politics, history and human rights. He incorporates drawing, photography, sculpture and text in dramatic, large-scale installations as well as precious miniatures.
