Historiador de la Ciudad de La Habana (the City Historian), HIVOS, ENET /
ETECSA Cubasí Portal, and the collaboration of the Union of Cuban Artists
and Writers (UNEAC), the Cuban Institute of Art and Cinema (ICAIC) and the
Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes (National Fine Arts Museum), announces the VI
Salón y Coloquio Internacional de Arte Digital (Sixth International Digital
Art Exhibit and Colloquium) with the purpose of promoting artistic and
cultural values created with new technologies.

The Art Exhibit, which will open on June 21, 2004, will once again show the
current work in this field and favor exchange and reflection among creators
and specialists engaged in these new forms of _expression.

The event covers two areas; the National Art Exhibit, of a competitive
nature, and a non-competitive On-Line International Art Exhibit, where works
by artists from other countries will be shown.


The Centro Pablo calls on digital artists from foreign countries to
participate in the On-Line International Art Exhibit that will be held at
the same time of the National Art Exhibit. Various artistic views within
this expressive modality will be brought together, thus facilitating debate

in the International Art Exhibit with Internet as their only support. These
works may be found at the Sixth Digital Art Exhibit Portal, developed by the
