Aventuras de un carpero

Last weekend Bihl Haus Arts hosted La: Carpa: A Mini-Symposium with Witte Museum curator Dr. Michaele Haynes and Pete Haney, Ph. D, who wrote his dissertation on the Carpa tradition, both spoke about the history of las carpas (Mexican tent circuses). The presentation coincided with Adriana Garcia’s Bihl Haus exhibit Entre la Carpa/Inside the Tent, where as notes suggest Garcia "explores self-identity in a new series of brilliant large-scale paintings inspired by her family’s history with La Carpa Garcia."  

In the clip below Haynes discusses the historical context of las carpas and Haney shares excerpts from recorded interviews with Garcia’s grandfather Rodolfo “Don Fito” Garcia. The clip ends with Virginia Garcia, Adriana's aunt, talking about her experience as a young girl with the Carpa Cubana.
