Latin Art Exhibitions
Presented by TD Salsa in Toronto
Every year, TD Salsa in Toronto presents a Latin Art Exhibition highlighting the most inspiring pieces from Latino and Hispanic artists celebrating Canada’s rich multiculturalism and Toronto’s love for Latin culture.
The 2020 Latin Art Exhibition took place virtually on tln TV and tln.ca, and featured the Havana 500 collection from the Colombian artist Angel Torres! In his Havana 500 selection, Torres shared his vision and experience with Cuba in 2018. Visiting for the first time, it was a most indelible impression made upon him. For the challenges Cubans face, one can’t help but see the valour and hope with which the people face daily life with so much warmth, art, music and a simple ‘alegria de vivir’!
2019 also commemorated Havanaʼs 500th Anniversary, so with this collection Torres shared his inspirations and the magic and passion of this vibrant culture undergoing great change and always brimming with hope, and courage for bright a new future.
