"From Picasso to Keith Haring"
2003-11-05 until 2004-03-15
National Museum of Fine Arts
Havana, , CU Cuba

Since November of 2003 until March 2004, The National Museum of Fine Arts from Havana Cuba is exhibiting its collection of XX Century Art under the tittle "From Picasso to Keith Haring". More than 90 artworks from its property are shown for the first time to the cuban and international public in the eclectic building of Museum of Foreign Arts, formerly known as Asturian Center before the Castro Revolution. Curated by Abelardo Mena, the museum curator of the XX century collection, the show includes artworks by the most important avantgarde artists from beginnings of the century, as Pablo Picasso, Amadeo Modigliani, Man Ray, Henri Matisse, Archipenko, Raoul Dufy, followed by the exponents of the Muralism Mexican School: Diego Rivera, Clemente Orozco and Siqueiros. Second wave Surrealists, as the Chilean artist Roberto Matta, or the Dominican painter Jaime Colson, are also included on the open rooms of the show.

The artworks, mostly donated by collectors and artists before and after the Revolution, includes a room dedicated to the US art from the Reagan era, which were donated in 1984 by 50 american artists. It contains among others, an outstanding piece by Keith Haring, a series of three sculptures by Mel Edwards from "The Lynch Fragments Series", canvas by Mary Beth Edelson and Harmony Harmond, a marble piece by Louis Burgueois and a piece from Rosa Luxemburg serie by May Stevens.
