At first glance, it would seem that the work of Antonio Espinosa and Alain Pino have no connection to each other, as they are two artists with different trajectories and, if you will, polarized. But beyond the topics that obsess both creators, the turning point that unites them is the procedural conception of their pieces, the transformation of a primordial idea that will later evolve into an artistic expression. This is the reason that brings them together and becomes a pretext to join them in the upcoming exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art of the Americas, MoCA-Americas, in Kendall.Read More

On the morning of Sunday, February 19th, the exhibition "Artist Set the Table" was inaugurated, curated by the hARTvest project in collaboration with the Museum of Contemporary Art of the Americas of Kendall (MoCA-Americas Kendall). This exhibition makes available to the public over one hundred plates made by important Cuban artists belonging to the Rodriguez Collection. A good number of families visiting Pinecrest Gardens this Sunday stopped to enjoy the exhibition throughout the day. Because the park provides an ideal setting for bringing art created by community artists into contact with a more heterogeneous audience that may not necessarily frequent galleries, it promotes not only entertainment but also artistic education and the promotion of art practice among new generations.
