K-51, open study of Cuban art

K-51 is the new open studio created by three Cuban artists, Carlos Javier Alonso Sosa; Jorge Luis Rodriguez Aguilar and Bernardo Vazquez; with the aim of showing his work and the art of other creators who face difficulties in accessing official galleries.

Workshops, studios and exhibition halls have been growing in Havana as an alternative to the difficulties to exhibit in the state circuit, involving months of waiting before an exhibition.

Located on K Street, number 51, the exhibition hall was once a basement; besides, the name of the space refers to Soviet submarines. As in those, the viewer falls, but in this case does emerge with a renewed art thinking.

K-51 exhibits works by the three artists who originated it. Cuba is the central theme that brings together the pieces. In this case, the creators show a different image of the island.

So says José Luis Rodríguez: In Cuba there are so many problems to be faced, solved. It may not only be the mulatta, snuff and rum, or Obama's visit. There is another Cuba to show. It is also exile, incomprehension, family breakdown.

In this regard, Javier Alonso presents an elaborate city with strong monochromatic contrasts, with canvases and cardboards ranging from large to small.
Bernardo Alonso, an experimental and passionate artist, presents nine pieces of medium format and mixed media. For him Cuba is a jungle of complexities and colors, convoluted and dynamic lines.

Meanwhile Jorge Rodriguez presents in his photographs the city as intertextual square and manifest. In it, streets, buildings and monuments are structured from the texts of their relationship with life itself.
