‘Parabolas Del Agua’ -Cuban Artists Speak

Sunday 9th Aug 5pm at 61 West Princes St

We will be joined by Elizabet Cerviño, José Eduardo Yaque and Lester Alvarez Meno speaking about their exhibition at WASPS studios.

‘The directors of Tengo Frío, María Paz Gardiazabal and Florrie James, have organized the exhibition in response to their exchange at the art school in Havana. The artists work with mixed media, making paintings, sculptures, installations and film. As Alvarez Meno says, their work focuses on the pretentious interest of men in nature and the ultimate indifference of the latter to express their situation as Cuban artists. Parábolas Del Agua will open a new conversation about making art within the two cultures of Cuba and Scotland. As well as capturing the distinct energy of the arts in Glasgow, we hope to strengthen the infrastructure of contemporary visual art in Havana.’

The talks will be a chance to explore the themes of the exhibition and to discuss art making in Havana and Glasgow.
