Stars add support to Cuban art show
Campaign News | Monday, 29 February 2016
Actors Emma Thompon and Peter Capaldi have lent their support to the Cuban art exhibition ¡PRESENTE! which is due in the UK in October.
They join British actors Frances de la Tour and Maxine Peake who have also given support to the project.
“Contemporary Cuban art is as intense and vivid as it’s ever been, so the chance to see some of it in the flesh in ‘Presente!’ is not to be missed. Help bring these works to London and lend some Latin excitement to the British scene,” says Calpadi, star of BBC TV's Doctor Who.
“I’m very pleased to support the forthcoming exhibition, ¡Presente!, a unique opportunity for UK audiences to enjoy the best that the rapidly changing Cuban art scene has to offer”, said Oscar winner Emma Thompson.
¡PRESENTE! is an exhibition of contemporary art from Cuba which will run from 6-29 October 2016 at London’s GX Gallery. ¡PRESENTE! will give 25 Cuban artists a rare opportunity to display their work in the UK, and profits from artwork sales will fund materials for Cuba’s art schools.
You can support the appeal to bring young rising star of Cuban art, Adislén Reyes, to Britain for the show and to participate in an associated programme of events. The deadline is 20 March 2016.
