The year 2010 has been designated by UNESCO  as the year of Jose Lezama Lima to commemorate the 100th year anniversary of birth of the famous writer.

Cremata Gallery  is  presenting “Lezama & the ‘Origenes’ Painters” in his honor. His  well established and internationally respected magazine “Origenes”  (1944-1956),  in 40 issues portrayed  the most representative  painters and writers of the Cuban  Republican era.

Amelia Peláez, Mariano Rodriguez, Rene Portocarrero , Víctor Manuel Garcia , Roberto Diago , Luis Martinez-Pedro,  Arístides Fernandez were among the painters to whom Lezama dedicated important essays.

Other important painters & sculptors who made the cover of Origenes like Wifredo Lam, Cundo Bermudez , Mario Carreño, Raul Milían, and Alfredo Lozano, will also be represented in this exhibit.

Two Lectures by Carlos M. Luis will complement the exhibit: Nov. 16-The world of Lezama / Nov. 17 Lezama and the “Origenes” Painters
