2017 – Siete Adagios para Safo y Ganimedes "Seven Adagios for Sappho and Ganymede" 

Despite the controversy of the homosexuality’s delicate theme in the communist’s Cuba, a collection of seven nonfigurative large format guitars curated by Journalist and writer Yoel Almaguer de Armas and Lic. in Art History Diana Rosa Crespo were exhibited in the Karl Marx Theatre. In the typical Josignacio’s forms and colors, they based their selection in order to match the seven colors of the rainbow; a cure was made to symbolize the colors of the flag that characterizes the world movement LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender) That are precisely the colors of the actual rainbow. The Rainbow Flag, also known as the LGBT flag, is the representation of the gay and lesbian community since the late 1970s. The flag was designed by artist Gilbert Baker and popularized in 1978. These pieces are part of Josignacio’s extensive series of guitars called “Rainbow Guitars” and he did this show in support of the rights of equality and acceptance of those discriminated against in his native Island and bravely led precisely by Mariela Castro Espin, the daughter of Raúl Castro Ruz, the actual president of Cuba. Mariela currently heads the Cuban National Center for Sex Education (CENESEX) proof that its government is showing their intentions in opening the human rights issues. The reason for the title "Seven Adagios for Sappho and Ganymede": Josignacio uses the musical term adagio because it is a musical piece whose tempo is slower, as well as slow has been the process of acceptance of LGBT movement and two characters, the real Sappho of Mytilene, also known as Sappho of Lesbos, a Greek poet who has historically been identified by many as the symbol of female homosexuality and the mythological Ganymede who became the lover of the God Zeus.
