Centro Cultural Pablo de la Torriente Brau

International Convocation

The Centro Cultural Pablo de la Torriente Brau, with the support of the Historiador de la Ciudad de La Habana (the City Historian), HIVOS, ENET / ETECSA Cubasí Portal, and the collaboration of the Union of Cuban Artists and Writers (UNEAC), the Cuban Institute of Art and Cinema (ICAIC) and the Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes (National Fine Arts Museum), announces the VI Salón y Coloquio Internacional de Arte Digital (Sixth International Digital Art Exhibit and Colloquium) with the purpose of promoting artistic and cultural values created with new technologies.

The Art Exhibit, which will open on June 21, 2004, will once again show the current work in this field and favor exchange and reflection among creators and specialists engaged in these new forms of expression.

The event covers two areas; the National Art Exhibit, of a competitive nature, and a non-competitive On-Line International Art Exhibit, where works by artists from other countries will be shown.

On-line International Art Exhibit

The Centro Pablo calls on digital artists from foreign countries to participate in the On-Line International Art Exhibit that will be held at the same time of the National Art Exhibit. Various artistic views within this expressive modality will be brought together, thus facilitating debate and considerations on their languages and poetics.

Two-dimensional, interactive and audiovisual digital works will participate in the International Art Exhibit with Internet as their only support. These works may be found at the Sixth Digital Art Exhibit Portal, developed by the Centro Cultural Pablo de la Torriente Brau and the ENET / ETECSA Cubasí Portal.

The International Art Exhibit will also include a Video Section that will be shown in the Centro Pablo, the Office of the City Historian, ICAIC and the National Fine Arts Museum.
