We are supper happy this week. Why? Because it was already a year ago when we were setting this OnCuba billboard. So lets party hard our first year by keeping you informed about everything is happening here and there. And we also have a new design as a birthday present!
To begin with this week here you have a books affair to stroll up and down Vedado area and something to read for the whole year. Music related we have a lot and for all tastes, as usual. Same in Visual Arts with expos and book presentations. Last but not least we also have Theater, Cinema, Art Factory and each one of them full of awesome things so you have a high September start.
As you see, we did our part. You only have to choose and find wherever you like. Join us in our celebration and let us know what you think of this new look. See you around!

“Nowadays we talk much, in and out of Cuba, about “opening” and “change”; that is when one is not trying to define the moment as “the end of the great tale”. However, beyond the faith in what is yet to come, and what we could see materialized then, there is a citizenship exercise we cannot put aside: the fact of analyze history carefully; to change within it self the great tale putting it face to face with its own imaginary; to revert, from the art, all kind of narrative. Surrounding such exercise one could observe what El fin del Gran Relato is about. Each artist embrace Arthur C. Danto’s thinking while underlining the idea that there is no history when there is no narrator. Every piece is a narrative sentence for reading some action backwards, or an event, a circumstance as part of the great national tale, even when sometimes its origin belongs to the most intimate and personal”. Maylin Machado and Henry Eric Hernández, words for the expo catalogue.
