To strengthen relations between the public
and the art world
In order to strengthen relationships between artists and the art public, a cocktail, good music, a light dinner and the exhibition as a backdrop.

Sarah Bejerano in her most architectural facet works with some of the emblematic buildings of Havana (Los Gigantes Series), giving them an almost human sense, where the calm and quiet that they transmit are presented as analogies of social stagnation. Daniel Bejerano, Cuban architect, founding member of the Architecture Section of the “Hermanos Saíz” Association, of the Faculty of Informational Design and the National Union of Writers and Artists of Cuba, has been appointed by Roberto Segre and Emma Álvarez-Tabío as member of the generation of architects of the 80’s in Cuba.
Vladimir works with documentary photography using intrigue as a tool to contain the gaze of the spectator who seeks his own experiences in the scene. His photography focuses on his protagonists, on their mood, on the strength or weakness of their gazes. Jorge Güiro seeks form, he seeks to break with the formal and structural principles of beauty. Therefore, the urban environment has become the main raw material of his photographic work, looking for scenes of certain drama, satire and even the surreal. In his extensive production he has collected a portrait full of details, as beautiful as it is as hard, of Cuban society in the last decade.
Leandro Feal is one of the most interesting artists of the young generation of Cuban photographers. His work builds cultural imaginaries of a Cuba of renewal and exchange of airs.
