In the didactic room on the second floor of the Cuban Art building of the National Museum of Fine Arts (MNBA), there are posters of significant films of Cuban cinema, authored by important creators of the visual arts...and by teenagers attending a workshop offered by the institution.

Cinema is an inspiration and starting point for interesting works honoring the extraordinary tradition of Cuban poster art. In the exhibition Múltiples Miradas (Multiple Looks), more than punctual aesthetic realizations, the creative impulse matters (wherever it comes from) and the always rich dialogue between audiovisual, design, and plastic arts.

That is why art works made by true masters coexist without trauma with works of delicious and highly suggestive spontaneity.

The experimental graphics workshop that artist Alexis Leyva Machado, Kcho, equipped on the ground floor of the building, made it possible to print the engravings showcased in the exhibition, to which are added works from the 2018 workshop that also encouraged the creation of children and adolescents from the national filmography: The designed memory.

These are new approaches to the national film heritage promoted by the MNBA's commitment: the convergence of artists with their potential audience.
