POÉTICAENTREDOS EXHIBITION Click Here for Spanish Version
from May 15, 2014
With Poéticaentredos (Poetic Encounter) we inaugurate the Sala Enfoque: Pedro Cortés Forteza, an exhibition space that will share the intimate and distinct proposals put forward by the artists whose work comprises the Chocolate Cortés Collection.
The aesthetic dialogue presented here between Agustín Fernández and José Morales, masters from different generations, allows the viewer to appreciate explorations and preoccupations that appear to fan out in different directions, but which nevertheless meet and are defined through a common denominator: both artists have forged their creative work in the Caribbean diaspora, a core element within the art history of our Caribbean Basin.
We trust this exhibition will be the beginning of a long journey towards new artistic meetings, interpretations, and perspectives.
