Salon and Colloquium on Digital Art concludes in Cuba
Creativity, fun and search livened up the sessions of the Ninth Salon and Colloquium on Digital Art, the end of which was marked on Friday by the exhibition of prize-winning audiovisual works.

The program also included the documentary DeGeneracion (2006), by filmmaker Aram Vidal, which took part in the last contest of young filmmakers and was well received by critics.

The gathering turned out to be a bright opportunity for graphic designers, historians, musicians, audiovisual creators and plastic artists to discuss art-related issues linked to new information technologies.

University professor, writer Jorge R. Bermudez, a leading specialist attending the event, highlighted the authenticity of this form of art which has already boasted great results, despite its tender age and its underestimation by purists.

Victor Casaus, who chaired the organizing committee, announced that this gathering will be followed up by the "Sharing Dreams" event in October, when Cuban and US graphic designers will meet and exchange experiences.
