Arte por Excelencias - - Portada -

The ar­tist Alberto Lescay along with his son Ale­jan­dro Lescay has inau­gu­ra­ted, in the Cen­ter for Cu­ban Stu­di­es of New York, a trans­cen­dent ex­hi­bi­ti­on. This ex­hi­bi­ti­on be­ars this tit­le, as an in­dis­so­lu­ble part of the So­mos pro­ject, which we ha­ve be­en ac­com­pa­nying sin­ce edi­ti­on num­ber 20 of Arte por Ex­ce­len­cia: the Cu­ban cul­tu­re im­pos­si­ble to block, the se­arch for new ways and its re­la­ti­ons­hip with the news that co­me and go betwe­en Cuba and the Uni­ted Sta­tes of Ame­ri­ca, in­clu­ding the re­es­ta­blish­ment of direct flights.

Our pre­sen­ce at Art Ba­sel Miami is, along with the re­cently stand at Art­bo, in Co­lom­bia, the gra­du­al res­to­ra­ti­on of foun­da­ti­o­nal dre­ams for this ma­ga­zi­ne, when a group of re-known ce­le­bri­ti­es thought how to pro­mo­te to the art and cul­tu­re from the be­au­ti­ful Is­land. Tho­se very sa­me art and cul­tu­re that ot­hers des­pi­sed we­re the shi­eld and the sword on the worst of all eco­no­mic cri­ses, and the op­por­tu­nity for the birth of the Gru­po por Ex­ce­len­ci­as.

Sin­ce then, thou­sands of prin­ted pa­ges, thou­sands of re­a­ders on the web, and an ava­lanc­he on the In­ter­net, spe­ak of this be­au­ti­ful en­de­a­vor: to hold an Art pro­ject ... for mo­re than six ye­ars. And al­re­ady 31 is­su­es, when ot­her cul­tu­ral ma­ga­zi­nes bre­ak, is the best pro­of of our com­mit­ment to Cuba, and the best of La­tin Ame­ri­ca and Eu­ro­pe, what we call Ibe­ro-ame­ri­ca, and still has much to say.

Arte por Ex­ce­len­ci­as clo­ses this cy­cle of sup­port, being me­dia part­ners of im­por­tant Eu­ro­pe­an fairs like Es­tam­pa Ma­drid, Swab Bar­ce­lo­na and Art Mar­be­lla, in the pe­nin­su­la; and in Lon­don with Cross­ro­ads Art Show. In ad­di­ti­on, we con­ti­nue to ac­com­pany trans­cen­dent events in the Is­land as the XI In­ter­na­ti­o­nal Fes­ti­val of Po­or Ci­ne­ma in Gi­ba­ra, Hol­guín; the 32th Fes­ti­val Jazz Pla­za, and Et­his 38th edi­ti­on of the In­ter­na­ti­o­nal Fes­ti­val of New La­tin Ame­ri­can Ci­ne­ma in Ha­va­na.

Twenty ye­ars will ha­ve pas­sed this 2017 sin­ce the joint work of our te­ams in Ma­drid and Ha­va­na star­ted. Two de­ca­des sin­ce Ex­ce­len­ci­as ca­me to the world in the Ca­rib­be­an Fes­ti­val from the un­con­que­ra­ble Santiago de Cuba, and the first ma­ga­zi­ne went from hand to hand talking of charm and the cre­a­ti­vity of Cu­bans, the strength of its au­ra, be­cau­se he­re we al­so ap­pre­hen­ded with Jo­se Mar­ti, Cu­ban Na­ti­o­nal He­ro, why Pa­tria is Hu­ma­nity.
