Rome.- A Cuban contemporary art exhibit, made up of more than one hundred works of Cuban artists, is presented at Instituto Cervantes at the Italian capital city.
The exhibit entitled Instinto básico: Papeles desde Cuba, will be opened until April 2 combining the work of 58 artists.
With the use of paper as the common denominator as raw material or fundamental support, the exhibit includes painting, drawings, photography, installations, collages, books objects building a very particular visual universe where meet the academic and the experimental, the minimalist and the conceptual, concerns of ethic, social, anthropological order, introspection and personal reflection as highlights a note published by the Cuban Embassy in Italy.
The exhibit, sponsored by that diplomatic legation with the collaboration of the Instituto Cervantes of Rome and the Cuban National Council of Visual Arts, shows art in its fickleness and power in an experience that seeks to explore the historic resorts of the common relations between both peoples and cultures.
In this sense, Cuban ambassador Alba Soto, expressed this is the most extensive and inclusive contemporary art exhibit presented in Rome in recent years, not only for the unquestionable quality of the works but for gathering in this big project 102 works of 58 artists.
