Christian art exhibit opens in Cuba

.- In an attempt to recover the spiritual and artistic roots of Cuba, this week in Havana a Christian art exhibit has opened, displaying over 46 works of art inspired by the person of Jesus.

The exhibit, which has been set up in the St. Charles and St. Ambrose Seminary, is being called, “Deus Verus, Verus Homo” (“True God, True Man”) and features watercolors, tapestries and sculptures which express their creators’ vision of Jesus.

“Our national cultural identity has been and is a very complicated process of transculturalization,” said art critic Moises Natanael Rodriguez, who added that the art exhibit is especially relevant because of a distorted emphasis on African religiosity to the detriment of the other face of Cuban culture: “Christian spirituality, morality and iconography.”

The exhibit features the work of Nelson Dominguez, Manuel Mendive, Zaida de Rio and Arturo Montoto, as well as works by Roberto Diago, Rigoberto Mena, Agustin Bejarano and Rene Portocarrero.

Organizers said some of the works will be made available for purchase by art collectors.
