HAVANA._ The 2015 Biennial of Havana will provide a space for the conglomeration of different branches of the fine arts, the director of the Wifredo Lam Contemporary Art Center, Jorge Fernández has announced.
The organizer of Cuba’s most important visual arts event explained that the biennial, scheduled for May 22-June 22 , will have no specific headquarters and will be simultaneously held in different parts of the capital so that the artists create works with that place and a broader urban context in mind.
“The city’s energy is very important for us; we not only invite artists but also scientists, musicians, architects, dancers, and professionals from different fields, because creativity knows no bounds,” Fernández said.
One of the upcoming biennial’s main objectives is for the event to incorporate various fields of knowledge, in addition to offering workshops on curatorship and meetings to ponder on architecture, urbanism and other city-related topics, the organizer commented.
Fernández intends the works on display to raise questions about the places alluded to by the artists or about where they create their works.
He said that the 12th Biennial’s slogan, “Between Idea and Experience”, refers to the differences between ideas about art and the way creative processes actually occur.
The upcoming edition will create spaces for the development of educational projects and the presentation of academic research that encourages people to reflect upon the arts.Share on FB Share on TT
