Praxis International Art is proud to present Open Secrets, recent photographs by Luis Mallo (b. Havana, Cuba. 1962). A selection of the works recently exhibited at the Project Gallery of The Jersey City Museum.

In this series of photographs, Luis Mallo enters the world of museum storage spaces, giving us access to the confidential and forbidden rooms that hold the valuable objects of our historic and cultural identity. Mallo breaches the walls that keep most of us out, but, at the same time, manages to maintain the secrecy and sanctity of the private space, leaving it mostly undisturbed and not seeking to fully expose or unveil it.
