This Friday took place in the Miramar Café the closing and awards ceremonies of the Second Expo- Sale Young Cuban Art Post-it. Organized by the National Center of Art Collage Habana belonging to the Cuban Cultural Fund, this event aimed at displaying and promoting the artistic production of the country’s young artists.
Post-it aims since its first edition at functioning as a multiple and heterogeneous platform, an action space for emerging artists.
The winners on this occasion were Jorge Dager, Grand Prize for his work Alter ego; Arianna Contino, First Prize by Scarabeo-9; Second Prize for Adislén Reyes by Blue Blood and Adrian Fernandez by Requiem.
It was also given an award for the purchase of materials to the Triangle group for their work Entropy and for conducting a personal showing to Johsue Pagliery for his video art Super Vaseline.
The award consists of the acquisition of the work in an amount that doesn’t exceed three thousand CUC, the ability to purchase materials for creation worth 1500 CUC and performing a solo show in one of the galleries of the National Center of Art with the promotional support that this requires.
The jury chaired by Moises Finalé and including Maria Milian, Alex Hernandez, Niels Reyes and Yudelkis Martínez had to select the prizes among the creations of fifty-five artists of various trends and styles.
Post-it is conceived as a space for action that encourages artists of less than 35 years of age to contest in an exhibition project that is grouped by type and not by curatorial criteria.
It left open the call for the next contest and it was announced that in October of next year the Collage Habana Gallery, Galiano and Artis 718 will host the Expo-sale.
