Havana Biennial 2015 Curatorial Concept 

The 12th Havana Biennial will not have a central exhibition area.  It aims at settling in those interstices of the city that facilitate the work at various venues throughout the city. This biennial will include the work of approximately 150 artists from Latin America, the Caribbean, Africa, the Middle East, Asia, Europe, Australia, Canada, and the United States. Under the theme “Between the Idea and Experience,” the 12th biennial will exhibit a group of works from artists that reflect this chosen thesis. The biennial organizers are interested in using art to explore the wide spectrum of problems that affect us daily in our countries and in our relations with the rest of the world. They expect the 12th biennial to focus less on specific topics and more on the creative process. It intends to expand the efforts of previous biennials involving the local and pro- fessional communities in the country.

In the words of the biennial organizers: “The projects to be carried out in Havana must bear an effect upon its inhabitants, either through the latter’s participation in their concept and achievement or through the presentation of the works as a live social laboratory. We would like to have the diverse scales of the urban network—universities, research centers and everything that makes integration possible—used as location and working material. We wish to favor the inter- sections between different art expressions such as dance, theater, music, the cinema, and literature, considering the semantic wealth that hybridization contributes to what we understand as visuality. The basic idea is to grant these crossings a leading role instead of being mere backdrops. Hence, our interest in extending an invitation for the con- fluence of artists and specialists in other disciplines.”

The curatorial team of the 12th Havana Biennial includes:
Director and Curator, Jorge Fernandez Torres
Artistic Director and Curato,r Margarita Gonzalez Lorente
Curators, Nelson Herrera Ysla, José Manuel Noceda Fernandez, Margarita Sanchez Prieto, Ibis Hernandez Abascal, Dannys Montes de Oca Moreda, and José Fernandez Portal
