The historic San Alejandro Academy of Arts opened its doors to CubaPlus with two motivating proposals. Students, teachers and employees of the centre, as well as important artists and directors of different institutions attended the presentation of the arts catalogues for demonstrations of the CubaPlus Contemporary Cuban Art Collection and the opening of the exhibition ‘Terceiras’ (Rain of Stars’).
The reception space was arranged to offer the public present a summary of what happens with our publication and the interesting art collection it treasures, its goals, objectives and promotional strategies, not detached from the academic profile. Copies of various editions of the magazine, both in English and Spanish, were presented to the students. The moment was also used for the official delivery of the First Volume of the Art Catalogue of the CubaPlus collection to the San Alejandro management, the Development Centre of Visual Arts and the library of the National Museum of Fine Arts.
The culmination of the event was the opening of “Terceiras’. Pieces from 24 artists of the catalogue were placed in the Jose Antonio Diaz Peláez gallery, a space that provoked nostalgic memories for many of those present of their time at the academy. What was a library in their time as a student became a stage to promote their work and reunite with colleagues and friends.
