Cecilia Crespo (On Cuba) writes about “Post-it”—an exhibition and sale of young Cuban art—which took place this Friday at the Miramar Café in Havana, Cuba. It featured an awards ceremony organized by the National Center of Collage Art Havana or Centro Nacional de Artes Plásticas Collage Habana (part of the Cuban Cultural Fund). This event aimed to display and promote the artistic production of the country’s young artists.
Post-it aims since its first edition at functioning as a multiple and heterogeneous platform, an action space for emerging artists. The winners on this occasion were Jorge Dager, Grand Prize for his work Alter ego; Arianna Contino, First Prize for Scarabeo-9; Second Prize for Adislén Reyes for Blue Blood and Adrian Fernandez for Requiem.
It also gave an award for the purchase of materials to the Triangle group for their work Entropy and for conducting a personal showing to Johsue Pagliery for his video art Super Vaseline.
The award consists of the acquisition of the work in an amount that doesn’t exceed three thousand CUC, the ability to purchase materials for creation worth 1500 CUC and performing a solo show in one of the galleries of the National Center of Art with the promotional support that this requires.
The jury, chaired by Moises Finalé and including Maria Milian, Alex Hernandez, Niels Reyes and Yudelkis Martínez, had to select the prizes among the creations of fifty-five artists of various trends and styles. [. . .]
