At ARCOmadrid, Galerie Crone Berlin showcased the work of seven young contemporary artists from Cuba. Poised at a historical turning point, the country has recently become more accessible to a wider international audience with the easing of the embargo. In this new political climate, Galerie Crone stepped forward to provide a platform in Europe for emerging Cuban artists. One of these artists, Rachel Valdes Camejo (1990, Havana), exhibited her dynamic piece Composición Infinita at ARCO 2016. The synaesthetic installation was a playful confluence of projected, coloured light on the walls of a stainless steel, mirror-clad room. The environment created by Valdes had an effect of a repetitive, infinite space and provokes a range of responses. We spoke to the artist about her work at ARCOmadrid 2016 and one of its most crucial components: the public.
