In January 2021 an exhibition of new posters responding to Covid-19, and inspired by well-known Cuban film posters, opened in Cuba in the ‘Casa’ of the Havana Film Festival. The designers were Annick Woungly, Iván Alejandro Batista, Kendrick Martínez, Javier G. Borbolla, Alejo R. Romero and Joéndez Calás.
The 14 works were presented via the social networks of CartelON Gráfica Cubana . CartelON hopes to open the gallery to the public to enjoy the works in person at a later date. The catalogue is free via their website to download at this link
