Cuban Curator Gerardo Mosquera Chosen New Curator of PhotoEspaña International Festival
By: Cuban Art News

HAVANA.-The PhotoEspaña International Festival of Photography and Visual Arts, held every June in different places along Spain, has appointed a Latin American curator its coordinator for the next three editions. The choice fell on the prestigious Cuban critic and curator Gerardo Mosquera, who recently organized the exhibition "El Patio de Mi casa" with international artists held in Cordoba as well as "Trastlántica" with critics and researchers of photography.

Founder of the Havana´s Wifredo Lam center, and manager of the first art biennals of the Third World organized by the director Lliliam Yanes ´s team, Mosquera was one of the most important promoters of the new Cuban art and a strong advocate for post-exotic concepts in the Latin American art. By mid 1990´s, Mosquera curated exhibitions at the New Museum of Contemporary Art in New York and has served as an advisor to the Rijksakademie van Beeldenden Kunsten, Ámsterdam. His large theoretical production includes works such as "El Diseño comenzó en Octubre" (on the Soviet avant-garde of the 1920´s,) "Beyond the Fantastic, Contemporary Art Criticism from Latin America" and is currently working on the project "Arte contemporáneo en patios de Quito", with 10 national and international artists.

With the presence of Mosquera, this annual festival of the image pursues to widen its international scope by enlarging all the manifestations presented in this event. PhotoEspaña director Claude Bussac said:" We have chosen a profile pointing to a multidisciplinary discourse and we hope to have the opportunity to collaborate with international institutions. Mosquera has been working on the next festival for some years but, although we don´t want to make it public, his curriculum can give us a clue about where to walk. "

The economic crisis in Spain has led to serious cuts in the budget of public management; a fact by Spanish president announced will be further accomplished next year. However, PhotoEspaña 2010 was able to reach different sectors with austere budgets. Mosquera will improve this working style through a better relationship with the contemporary creation.
