Cuban Museum Presents: The Shortest Distance/La distancia más corta.
MIAMI, Florida June 11th, 2013-The Cuban Art Project: The Shortest Distance | La Distancia Más Corta highlights the works of two exiled Cuban artists who have made their residence in Spain: Andrés Lacau (Madrid), and Pablo Leonardo Martínez (Barcelona). Both artists have exhibited extensively in the U.S., Europe, and Latin America, in both solo, and group exhibitions. Their work is also included in many private collections.
This exhibition was curated by Ileana Fuentes and Jesus Rosado, and was organized in collaboration with WDNA 88.9FM Jazz Radio. It is part of the Sweet Home: Museo Cubano project of the Cuban Museum, and is the first of several Sweet Home: Museo Cubano activities that will feature the work of visual, literary and performing Cuban émigré artists who live and work in Spain.
