The 2017 Hispanic Culture Cycle in Cuba today offers exhibitions, concerts, conferences and other activities in various stages of Havana, in order to show and consolidate Hispanic-Cuban ties in culture. As part of the event, Casa Guayasamín, in Havana, will host the exhibition Oculto esplendor, by the artist Juan Manuel Seisdedos, a native of Huelva and considered one of the greatest exponents of Andalusian painting of the 21st century. The cantaora Rocío Márquez and the guitarist Miguel Angel Cortés will carry out, next October 26, the concert Los Cantes de Ida y Vuelta, in the Theater Room of the National Museum of Fine Arts. The program also includes a meeting with the actor, academic of the language and Spanish theater director José Luis Gómez, who will also provide a dramatized reading of Miguel de Cervantes' testament of Don Quixote at the Teatro Bertolt Brecht Café , on October 28. Likewise, Gómez will present the film Los ojos vendados, directed by the prestigious Spanish filmmaker Carlos Saura, in the projection room of the Office of the International Festival of New Latin American Cinema in Havana. About the cycle, architects and heritage experts will exchange knowledge about port-city relations in both cities: Huelva and Havana. The event, until October 28, is sponsored by the Ministry of Culture of Cuba, the Office of the Historian of this city, the Embassy of Spain and the International Theater Festival of Havana. Their hosts will be the Cuban actress Laura de la Uz and the Spanish photographer Héctor Garrido, next to the Center of Harina Art of Other Costal, and at the same time it counts on the sponsorship of the Diputación Provincial de Huelva. The project arose from the connections between a group of artists who develop cultural activities in Huelva and another in Havana with similar actions. According to the organizers, the main objectives of the cycle are to deepen Hispanic-Cuban cultural fusion and increase reciprocal knowledge and collaboration, bridging cultural brotherhoods.
