In these times, when many are advocating the end of the print media andfavoring digital publishing, undertaking a project like this can evoke the mostimpassioned utopian ideas.We had the good fortune of coinciding in the same space and time with ateam that saw the necessity of a magazine with these characteristics for pro-moting Cuban art outside the boundaries of the island, a magazine holdingthat undeniable magic of the printed word that has captivated humanity forcenturies.Hugo Cancio, president of the Fuego Media Group, and his fantastic pro-duction team for
OnCuba
magazine set about
nding the sta
 
, examiningoptions, and opening the way for this new publication. Through that process,we became even more
rmly convinced that the realization of 
 Art OnCuba
 was essential for achieving an ecumenical perspective on Cuban art, creatingspace for projects generated by artists on the island and by those who livein other parts of the world. The opportunity of taking this knowledge to theinternational circuit was another de
ning factor for us. In a world where mag-azines focused on the present almost always champion poetics legitimized by institutions and the market, we want to make a di
 
erence by providinginformation in each issue that connects contemporary visual production withthe history of art in Cuba, o
 
ering a perspective on the past that enriches andreveals keys to the present.For this issue, No. 0, we have put together a diverse and comprehensiveselection, beginning with exhibitions that re
ect maturity in investigative,curatorial and museographic work, as well as the projection and in
uenceof Cuban art in U.S. circles. The
rst cluster of articles takes a look at a soloshow by Tonel at Factoría Habana described as “an extraordinary exercise insystemization”; the lucidity of two Cuban curators, José Manuel Noceda andNelson Herrera Ysla, in their conception and production of exhibitions reveal-ing new ways of appreciating Wifredo Lam’s work and the course of contem-porary architecture and graphic design, respectively; Eduardo Ponjuán’s mostrecent proposal for Galería Habana; the inclusion of two works by J.M. Fors inthe Pilara Collection; and the magnitude of Alexandre Arrechea’s
 NOLIMITS
in New York.Another section of 
 Art OnCuba
is devoted to exploring Cuba’s participa-tion in the Venice Biennale, with a historiographical overview that beginsin 1952 and ends with projections for Cuba’s 2013 pavilion, curated by JorgeFernández and Giacomo Zaza. In taking a look at galleries that work withCuban art in and outside the country, as well as art collecting in its di
 
er-ent forms, we have included interviews with Luis Miret, director of GaleríaHabana, and with Howard Farber and Alfredo Sosabravo. And yet anothercluster of articles seeks to inform our readers about projects—both recent andin progress—by Cuban artists from di
 
erent generations, including reviewsof the work of Sandra Ramos, Inti Hernández, and Carlos Martiel; an inter-view with Tomás Sánchez, and more. We also pay our own special homage toCuba’s national
ne arts museum, the Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes, as itcelebrates its centennial, and give you all the details regarding the release of aphotography portfolio by Iván Cañas.
 Art OnCuba
is born. What will be simply a surprise, or an impact, for read-ers has been for us a convergence of various perfect moments, joined by per-severance, chance, and experience. That is why we are con
dent about thismagazine, bolstered by our certainty that its content and visual quality willtake it very far.As expert competitors in the very Cuban game of dominoes, we drew thedouble-blank—an unexpected move, surprising and magnifying the interestof everyone who is paying attention to the game.
