Entrevistas

2 Cubans in Brooklyn: Jorge Wellesley and Elizabet Cerviño

Jorge Wellesley and Elizabet Cerviño are the last of six Cuban artists to take part in this spring’s international residency program at Residency Unlimited in Brooklyn. In a pair of mini-interviews, they talk about the program, speculate about its impact on their work, and compare New York to Havana—and Miami.

Rosa Lowinger: “Deterioration and repair go together”

Cuban-born Rosa Lowinger is an award-winning fine-art and architecture conservator and the author of Tropicana Nights: The Life and Times of the Legendary Cuban Nightclub. She recently spoke with Cuban Art News associate publisher Patricia Farber about architectural restoration in Havana, the city’s modernist architecture, and more.

The CINTAS Foundation Seizes the Moment in Cuban Art

The CINTAS Foundation has long been a source of support for Cuban artists in Miami and beyond. But few of the foundation’s actions have generated as much public discussion as the decision to open its fellowships to applicants on the island. Cuban Art News caught up with CINTAS Foundation board president Victor Deupi for a conversation ranging from the foundation’s decision to the recent Trump Administration announcement.

The Cine Cubano of Papacito Bach

Cinema may be an art, but it’s also big business. Jesús Hernández, the ISA-educated producer and promoter behind New York’s Bach Media, talks about the nuts and bolts of Cuban film production with Lidia Hernández Tapia—from Hollywood’s Fate of the Furious to the infrastructure needed for filmmaking on the island to thrive.

In the Gallery with Enrique Martínez Celaya

In a stroll around his new show in Chelsea, the artist spoke about how being Cuban has influenced his work, what the challenges he finds in painting, and why his work isn’t really figurative. And a possible new project in Havana.
