Exhibition dedicated to Cuba’s heritage city

Camagüey, Cuba, Jul 5 (Prensa Latina) Heritage in Pixels, a photographic exhibition by five professionals, arrives today as a tribute to the declaration of the Historic Center of Camagüey, in eastern Cuba, as a World Heritage Site.

In the presentation of the exhibition, the specialist of the Office of the Historian, Malena Alvarez, summarized that the images ‘look at different areas of the system of tangible, intangible and natural assets that are part of social practices, and give new meaning to them with their images’.


The creation a year ago of the Specialized Circle of Heritage Communication, thanks to the joint work of the Union of Cuban Journalists (Upec) and the Office of the Historian has allowed ‘to rediscover part of the product of a permanent and complex social process’, according to Alvarez.

Patrimonio en Píxeles, also dedicated to the 61st anniversary of Upec, summarizes 15 snapshots that include shots of religious architecture, funerary repertoire and other cultural expressions ‘that have influenced the construction of the identity of Camaguey and Cuban people,’ Alvarez said.

Camagüey has one of the most remarkable patrimonial wealth among the first Villas founded in the 16th century by the Spanish metropolis.

Its artistic life is a sample of the legacy of a series of traditions and socio-historical processes in more than five centuries of existence where the inhabitants of the former Villa have marked a distinctive seal in Cuba.
