Press release from: Fidel Mico Catalogue Raisonne

Havana, February 21, 2020 - The researcher in charge of the project "Fidel Micó Catalogue Raisonné" is pleased to announce the public performance of the great master from February 21 to 28. Micó will be painting at the private gallery "Humidores Habana" (Bulevar de San Rafael, Centro Habana, La Habana, Cuba) to show his exquisite technique to create high quality landscape paintings. Access will be free immediately after inauguration ceremony at 6:00 pm. Art lovers, collectors, gallerists, curators, journalists, and historians have been invited to visit Humidores Habana to enjoy this extraordinary performance, and living a week of unforgettable art experiences which include exhibition of oil on canvases finished by Micó a few days ago.

Although public performances of painters are usual in Paris, this practice has not been documented in Havana, Cuba. A few persons have seen a Cuban painter working at the artist studio. This is also an extraordinary opportunity for scholars, students, and film makers interested in the painting process and documentation of the contemporary Cuban art. The relevance of this event is far beyond formal issues, because many questions on the work of most Latin American painters will be present at every lecture, exhibition, biennial, art fair, and auction, from now on.

The assistance of the most important Cuban artists to the Micó's performance will be almost unavoidable, and a later extension of this forgotten practice could be expected. Something is for sure, an unexpected public performance of a Cuban painter will be a strong motivation for many other artists, from different regions of the country, and could be the starting point of a more innovative artistic movement headquartered in Havana.

Fidel Micó (b. 1962) is an ambidextrous painter regarded as one of the prominent figures of an artistic movement that includes more than 50 Cuban landscape painters whose excellent representation of nature has formed the basis for the revival of the genre after the 1980s. The Fidel Micó Catalogue Raisonné highlights the artist's historic presence and significant contribution to Cuban Art of the XX and XXI centuries, and includes biography, chronology, authenticity, and artworks by Fidel Micó currently being compiled (Art Documentation, 2015, 34 (2): 349-353).
