The Museum of Latin American Art (MOLAA) in conjunction with the Richardson Center for Global Engagement and  Self Help Graphics workshop based in Los Angeles, California (USA), conducted a professional invitation to several artists of the Experimental Graphic Workshop in Havana (TEGH, in Spanish).

The invitation was addressed to the development of an exchange with American artists on styles, techniques, processes and insertion of the works of artists Octavio Irving Hernandez (Irving), Yamilis Brito, Carlos Jesus del Toro, Angel Eusebio Rivera and Angel Manuel Ramirez in the panorama of contemporary Cuban art. As part of the exchange these five engravers works exhibited at the stand of MOLAA at the Convention Center. In this exhibition they showed their aesthetic and latest creations. Meanwhile, Irving explained the piece Travesía created in 2015.

The exchange was very productive and took place between 16 and 23 January. The folder that these Cuban artists exhibited was reviewed and recommended as one of the best six samples of the International Art Fair in Los Angeles.
