23 Years Later recreates a walk my grandfather and I often took when I was a child in the early 1990s. On Saturday mornings, we would go on what at the time seemed like a lengthy trek from our home to La Campana, a local convenience store which served as a social hub for an older generation of Cuban men. Today, both La Campana and my grandfather are long gone and my family has moved from the house in Miami where I was raised. Taking cues from the work of Dara Friedman and Francis Alÿs, 23 Years Later measures the temporality of the city against the resilience of memory.
