September, 2021.- A design that combines creative dialogue with different expressions of national and universal art and culture stimulates Cuba through the itinerant exhibition Ideas en Formas that shows the Prize, mentions and finalist works of the First National Contest of Utilitarian Ceramics.

With the 14 works or set of pieces, they are exhibited on different digital platforms, from the Confluencias Gallery, of the Caguayo system in Camagüey, to commemorate the 26th anniversary of that institution, founded on September 21, 1995 by the teacher Alberto Lescay. Headquartered in Santiago de Cuba, whose missions include the development of the visual and applied arts in the country.

Daimí Ruiz Varela, coordinator of cultural projects in Camagüey of the Caguayo Foundation, reported that 63 projects were submitted to the national competition, mostly individual, and to a lesser extent, as creative groups.

She highlighted the notable participation of the Higher Institute of Design, as well as potters, designers, artisans and artists, from the provinces of Santiago de Cuba, Las Tunas, Ciego de Ávila, Matanzas, Isla de la Juventud, Havana and Camagüey .

She emphasized the need to build new discourses to grow and foster the creative dialogue between utilitarian ceramics and design with a Cuban invoice.

The event aims to become, he said, a periodic space in the artistic and creative panorama of the largest of the Antilles, with the wisdom of also originating, in the universe of utilitarian ceramics, functional objects with high aesthetic and conceptual value that have to do with identity and culture.

When epidemiological conditions are favorable, visitors and locals will be able to view in the Confluencia Gallery on República Street in the city of Camagüey, the set of works from the itinerant exhibition Ideas en Formas, which is also sponsored by the National Museum of Contemporary Ceramics and the Office of the Historian of Havana.
