The curator of Havana's Wifredo Lam Art Gallery, Pepe Fernández, is in Kenya to fulfill cultural accords between that East African nation and Cuba.

Fernández is leading the preparation of the 10 Bienal de la Habana (Havana Biennial), an exhibition of contemporary art from five continents that has, since its inception, provided Cuban artists with increased visibility and access to the international art world.

During his stay, Fernández is meeting with top local representatives of the fine arts and touring art galleries and exhibition halls in Nairobi, such as the National Museum and the non-profit Kuona Trust established on the museum's grounds in 1995.

As part of his work agenda, the Cuban curator will also visit the French Alliance and give a lecture at the University of Nairobi on Thursday.

Furthermore, an exhibit of Cuban art currently on display at the 3rd Eastern Africa Biennial, in Tanzania will also take part in Kenya's Visual Arts Festival.
