Director and photographer John Rowe has documented for decades the different cultures all around the globe, from Asia to India, to Mongolia, to Africa and even Cuba. There, he met Manuel Mendive, one of the most prolific artist of the island. The exhibition Manuel Mendive: Nature, spirit and body is the result of their collaboration, a hybrid creation where painting, body paint and photography blend together. An immersion into a colourful and fascinating universe, filled with folk, body painted dancers, posing in the rainforest of Cuba. An event organised by the Bronx Museum of the Arts, until November 4th.
