Without Masks, probably the National Museum of Fine Arts exhibition of the year, is made up of works from the Von Christierson Collection (Watch Hill Foundation, London). The 149 pieces by 40 Cuban artists from the past 60 years include paintings on canvas and wood, watercolors, glass and enamel on aluminum foil, drawings, engravings, collages, patchwork, bronze and iron sculptures, soft sculptures, wooden sculptures, photographs, installations, video installation and video art. The exhibition El último cabildo de Yemayá, by Cuban photographer Roberto Salas, will be presented in the lobby of the museum’s Antonio Rodríguez Morey Documentation Center. A program of lectures (with simultaneous translation) by guest experts will be held during the exhibition.
