¡Ustedes primero! is the title of the group exhibition organised by the Italian Embassy in Havana in collaboration with Galleria Continua on the occasion of the celebration of the 18th Day of the Contemporary.
The Embassy headquarters opens its doors to host the works of twelve contemporary Cuban artists.
The works will occupy different areas of the building, from the offices to the common areas and the garden of this beautiful neoclassical-style villa, which is also celebrating its 20th anniversary this year as the headquarters of the Italian Embassy.
The large colonnade, which extends around the perimeter, the Sevillian-style inner courtyard with a central fountain and the elegance of its interior make this architecture the perfect location for the works. The exhibition includes various artistic manifestations: painting, sculpture, installation, photography.
The title refers to the respect and courtesy shown to visitors of the Embassy, in this case Cuban artists, who are welcomed at the diplomatic headquarters.
