MIAMI, Florida The Cuban Art Project October, 5, 2012- This exhibition will explore how visual artists perceive these mediums as new ways of expressing their inner world. How they define, construct, and support contemporary Art via Social Media. Do they believe these new technologies will change forever the way we consume art? How are they embracing it? The term social media refers to the use of web-based and mobile technologies to turn communication into interactive dialogue. Andreas Kaplan and Michael Haenlein define social media as “a group of Internet-based applications that build on the ideological and technological foundations of Web 2.0, and that allow the creation and exchange of user-generated content.” Social media are media for social interaction, as a set of methods to enhance social communication, using ubiquitously accessible and scalable communication techniques.

Edwin Land of Polaroid talked about the intersection of the humanities and science. I like that intersection. There’s something magical about that place. I think great artists and great engineers are similar, in that they both have a desire to express themselves. In the seventies computers became a way for people to express their creativity. In fact some of the best people working on the original Mac were poets and musicians on the side. Great artists like Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo were also great at science. Michelangelo knew a lot about how to quarry stone, not just how to be a sculptor.” Steve Jobs About Paragon: Paragon Gallery is conveniently located in the famous Wynwood Art District in Miami, Florida.  The Gallery is rapidly becoming one of the best galleries in the area, this largely due to the success and popularity the gallery has acquired with emerging and mid-career Cuban and Latin American artists.
