The Biennial opens today. Andrew’s work has still not arrived. People are setting up furiously and visitors are already swarming around the Cabãna. I have a look at the work, there are some good pieces but most of it is not that impressive. The scale of the Biennial is huge though and it extends far beyond the Cabãna. Logistically it is a remarkable feat.
At 7pm Punkasila perform to a small group on plastic chairs. They don’t give a damn! The lead singer only threatens to stop when the band run out of Bucanero Beer. Later the official opening act is X-Alfonso who performs Cuban fusion music to dancing crowds. An unofficial afterparty begins where Punkasilia performed earlier.
