She is a Canadian citizen since 1979 and has also a wide pedagogical experience in her country and in Europe.

Cohen who is dedicated nowadays to the Cuban capital, its architectonic environment and public squares, will offer a conference at the Higher Arts Institute.

The speech of the creator is about inner spaces (classrooms, labs, art halls, offices) without any kind of artificial light. The stages become a no ones land a – no place -, without any owners of settlers.

The Spanish critic Alvaro de Angeles said, - the spaces suffer a crisis for the non human presence and the election of transit places, which, nevertheless, loose their mobile quality by becoming objects, images with the aspects of tri dimensional works-.

The exhibition of Lynne Cohen will be at the Fototeca de Cuba in the Old Square of this capital, until the 4 of January 2009.
