Cuban Gold - London Print Studio
LONDON Print Studio is presenting an exhibition of contemporary Cuban prints. Entitled Cuban Gold: Viva La Reproduccion, it runs from January 20 to June 4, 2011.
Cuban art always has something powerful to say – whether it’s post revolutionary art or the music featured in the film Chico and Rita.
The contemporary art scene in Cuba is one of the most interesting in the world and this vibrant exhibition features some of the most important younger artists working in Cuba today. It’s curated by leading Cuban artist Sandra Ramos.
What does it mean to be a Cuban artist in 2011? The Cuban art scene has expanded beyond the country’s borders and this exhibition is a first opportunity for UK audiences to view and collect prints by emerging Cuban artists at reasonable prices.
The story of Cuban art is one of a young country with ancient traditions. In Cuban Gold- Viva La Reproduccion see Cuban art in its contemporary international context.
Artists with work in the show include Abel Barroso, with light hearted images of impossible machines; Mabel Poblet with her kinetic games; Jose Toirac with his ‘exhumations’ of historic fragments; Jacqueline Brito and her Mirage print series of the seashore, imaginary ships and migration; Sandra Ramos with her Alice in Wonderland figures; and Osmeivy Ortega and his idiosyncratic inhabitants of the ‘real’ Cuba.
While most of the artists whose work is on display have been featured in leading international exhibitions, this is the first time their work has been exhibited anywhere in the UK. All works are for sale at very reasonable prices.
Times: Tuesday to Saturday from 10.30am to 6pm.
