12TH HAVANA BIENNIAL
The fine arts have always been a human necessity and the Espacio Altamira is no exception. Here, artists seek a space where they can interact with their discourse, finding a ‘silent zone’ which, once discovered, can become a place where experiences are generated on the basis of art and its links to the community
Other launches held during the Festival dedicated to Cuban habanos, a term which refers to premium quality hand-rolled cigars from the island, included those by brands Hoyo de Monterrey Le Hoyo Río Seco and Vegueros Centrofinos
Cuba’s Tourism minister noted that the main damage in this sector was limited to light roofing, false ceilings, broken windows, and green areas
