It's an apt metaphor for the wealth of punchy graphic visions on show, which begin outside the gallery itself.
The casual passer-by on the pavement is ambushed by images filling the floor-to-ceiling windows, creating a symbiotic link between street and exhibition space.
Inside, the striking first impression is that the works are entirely figurative. As curator Sandra Ramos explains, "Cuban artists trust it as the best language for maintaining a dialogue with the people. We are both engaged in a permanent debate, literally inseparable."
No art for art's sake here, then.
