Presentation on October 11, 5:30 PM

As part of the Montreal – Havana exchange, organized by the RCAAQ since 2011 in partnership with the Conseil des arts de Montréal, Galerie B-312 is pleased to welcome Cristina Figueroa Vives, New Media curator. Cristina Figueroa Vives is invited by the RCAAQ to complete a training residency as a curator in Montreal. A partnership has been established this year with the Centro de Desarollo de las Artes Visuales in Havana and OBORO in Montreal. This meeting will focus on the issues of the contemporary art world in Cuba as well as her curatorial practice in new media. The Montreal – Havana Exchange allows artists and curators to immerse themselves in a new creative-thinking environment and to engage in activities that combine visual and media arts, in order to encourage partnerships and long-term projects. This project also aims to promote access to expertise and investigate new artistic territories, in both Cuba and Montreal.
