Comments

For over twenty years, the 13 acclaimed artists represented in this exhibition have ingeniously expressed their experiences of life in Cuba. They have survived cultural politics, difficult living conditions, and resource shortages that limited their access to the most basic materials, like paper. The exhibition gathers over 120 art works and books (handmade books, prints, sculptures, film about artists, digital frames, and mixed media), maquettes for unpublished projects, related prints, and printed objects. The books were designed for Ediciones Vigía, a collaborative artists' press founded in 1985 in Matanzas. The only press of its kind in Cuba or perhaps anywhere, it began with a mimeograph machine and a borrowed typewriter. Its limited editions of works by leading Cuban authors as well as García Lorca and Rimbaud are designed and illustrated primarily by Rolando Estévez. Many are collaged with cloth, leaves, or wood scraps, making them unique; some are made as scrolls for hanging. The opening of the exhibition will coincide with the 50th anniversary of the Cuban Revolution, but the intense independence of the works reveals the artists' creative resilience and imaginative power to negotiate the political, social, and cultural difficulties and paradoxical privileges ruling their careers over the past two decades. Participating artists include Sandra Ramos, René Peña, Rocío García, Sandra Ceballos, Ibrahim Miranda, Danilo Moreno, Jose Ángel Vincench, Carlos Estévez, brothers Yoan and Iván Capote, René Bravo Quintana, Tonel (Antonio Eligio Fernández) and Olympya Ortiz, the book-making collective Ediciones Vigía, and the print collective, La Huella Múltiple.

El libro contiene más de 120 libros, maquetas, grabados y objetos de arte. Muchos de los libros fueron diseñados por Ediciones Vigía, una prensa de artesanos colaboradores fundada en 1985 en Matanzas. Las ediciones limitadas de obras de eminentes autores cubanos y extranjeros, como García Lorca, Szymborska, Rilke, Dickinson y Rimbaud, son principalmente diseñadas e ilustradas por Rolando Estévez. Muchas contienen collages con tela, hojas o astillas de madera que las hacen únicas. Estos artistas y artesanos expanden las definiciones del concepto de libro para expresar una mezcla de ideas de vanguardia con tendencias internacionales e impresiones nacionales.
