From May 14, 2019 to May 24, 2019.
9 a.m. - 4 p.m.
The exhibition ‘Ramón Alejandro vs Elio Rodríguez’ includes around twenty works, including medium-sized paintings and sculptures, most of them created for this exhibition. The works of Elio Rodríguez (Havana, 1966) are mainly soft sculptures, while Ramón Alejandro (Havana, 1943) exhibits paintings and a small bronze sculpture. In addition, we will be able to enjoy three works made by four hands between Ramón Alejandro and Elio Rodríguez, specially created for the exhibition.
As the curator of the exhibition Dennys Matos, “the exhibition ‘Ramón Alejandro vs Elio Rodríguez’, brings together the work of two Cuban neo-figurative artists of very different generations and trajectories, but both attracted to reinterpret, from an overflowing sensuality, the Cuban pictorial and sculptural tradition from the XX century. They assume the contemporaneity of it, as a synthesis between the popular and the high culture, between the eroticism and sexuality, refusing to believe in the dominant representations of the reality of power and self-affirming politics.
