Founder Sandra Ceballos teams up with Coco Fusco in an ambitious long-term project
Last month, Havana artist and curator Sandra Ceballos and Cuban-American artist, writer, and scholar Coco Fusco launched a campaign in support of Espacio Aglutinador, Ceballos’s independent art space, and a new international program hosted there. Cuban Art News spoke with Fusco about the plans for Aglutinador and how they’re proceeding.
Tell us about Espacio Aglutinador. How would you describe its place in the history of contemporary Cuban art?
Aglutinador is the longest running, most consistently maintained independent art space in Cuba. It’s been in operation since 1994. That, in and of itself, is amazing. Sandra always finds new and different ways to exhibit work and present programs, to nourish young artists and artists who are in one way or another outsides the mainstream.
