Open "ABUC - Eleven Cuban Artists" at the gallery Mai36

By El Apartamento Staff, 05 November 2019

The last November 1st, the Swiss gallery Mai36 opened the group show “ABUC - Eleven Cuban Artists” that gathers the work of eleven Cuban authors. The exhibited artists are: Alejandro Campins, Laura Carralero, Raúl Cordero, Leandro Feal, Carlos Garaicoa, Flavio Garciandía, Orestes Hernández, Reynier Leyva Novo, Michel Pérez Pollo, Irving Vera and José Yaque.  
In the words of the gallery: “ABUC brings together a group of Cuban artists as a personal overview on the current contemporary art scene in Havana. It is a glimpse into an island universe and a personal choice. Victor Gisler has regularly visited Havana and its artists’ studios over the last 8 years. This show aims to introduce to a western audience a group of four generations of artistic practises in Cuba – mythical, mysterious, sensual, dynamic, unique, bizarre and misunderstood.
The conditions and themes of these practices are precarious, not just economically, but also psychologically, spiritually and politically.”*
