In 2011, Nahualli organized a beautiful event, opening the doors to a distinguished group of Cuban artist. The exhibition consisted of wonderful paintings, drawings and sculptures, as well as sample dishes made by each artist.
The intention of this event was to create a direct contact between art and its spectator. We wanted to take away the existing taboo around the idea of art as an untouchable thing.
We created elegant banquet tables designed by each artist with their plates as part of the art work at the event. At the opening night, we enjoyed a delicious three-course dinner.
The participating artists from Cuba were: Angel Ramírez, Carlos Camero, Estefanía Diez (Nur), Eduardo Abela, Héctor Frank, José Agustín González (Grillo) and, as host artists, Abel Vázquez and Melva Medina.
The event was framed with an amazing concert by Pawel Blaszkowski on the violin and Ruth Bennett at the harp.
The tasting was offered by Martín Álvarez Ibarrondo.
To organize this event, we counted with the collaboration of Georgina Colina.
