In May 2011, Mala, a British/Jamaican electronic artist internationally recognised as being at the forefront of the original ‘dubstep’ movement, travelled to Havana with DJ, broadcaster and record collector Gilles Peterson to work on a new album.
Since its launching in 2010, the Havana Cultura Visual Arts Project has provided funding and mentoring to twelve projects by young Cuban artists covering a wide range of disciplines, including sculpture, photography, performance, painting, and installation. Attached are descriptions of the selected proposals and visuals of the finished projects.
As part of its commitment to Cuban visual arts, Havana Cultura ensured extensive coverage of the 11th Havana Biennial, which took place between May and June 2011. A mini-documentary as well as a chronicle, pictures and artists’ interviews may be found on a dedicated section at Havana-Cultura.com
