Description of Ola Cuba!: lille3000 is organizing an event dedicated to Cuban culture in Lille, France. The events and exhibitions of Ola Cuba! will be deployed everywhere in the city: Saint Sauveur Station, the Museum of l’Hospice Comtesse, and lille3000’s partners and merchants, in bars, movie theaters, libraries, etc.

The exhibition Ola Cuba! at Gare Saint Sauveur will include installations, photographs, paintings and several major productions. It will gather the great majority of the work of artists born in the 70s-80s, and imbued by the 1990s. [. . .] This generation of artists is called the artists of the Special Period [Período Especial].

The challenge of this exhibition is to render an account of their creative work, the evolution of various discourses, and the plurality of the means of expression that enter the art and social scene little by little; this generation of artists announces a renewal, they are the first to cross borders.
