La Espera: The Wait 2013 Edition of 30, $2200, Lithography, silkscreen, linocut, etching on paper. La Espera is collaboration with 17 Cuban printmakers with an essay by Janette Brossard.
Here we inhabit the wait from our coffeepots boiling as dawn breaks. During the day we ride the wait to move from one place to another. Then we hop off one wait on another, transforming waiting lines into the well-known territory where we rehearse every possible behavior. Janette Brossard.
Haciendo presión (“Putting Pressure”) is an independent project conceived by a group of Cuban artists whose creative work has demonstrated for nearly fifteen years printmaking remains a powerful artistic medium within the island’s contemporary art scene. The groups first action took place during the 11th edition of Havana’s International Art Biennial with a collective show at the San Carlos de la Cabaña Fortress. Their second action is this book that more fully defines their comprehensive vision by putting pressure on social issues.
