EL ARTE CUBANO
The art of Cuba

Cuban art blends traditional and modern influences from many cultures, both / western and non-western in origin. Cuban artists work across a variety of media / linking painting, poster and print making with textile and fashion design. This / experience will be of interest to people in the U.K. who work in fine art, / community art, black art, fabrics and fashion, art administration and policy / making and art history.

Aldo Menendez Gonzalez director of the Silkscreen Workshop 'Rene Portarrero / will be visiting in the U.K. from May 13 to June 3. / Also would like to develop contacts and trading links between arts workers here / and in Cuba. He will be presenting a series of talks on the arts in Cuba. If you / would like to attend any of these talks, or wish to invite Aldo to visit your project please contact one of the numbers below.
