HAVANA, Cuba, Dec 6 (ACN) Experience 2 of the Havana Biennial officially begins today and will last until March 24, 2022, with Cuban art taking center stage in the program of activities.
The whole city will take part in this phase, titled “The Biennial’s Havana”, through exhibitions, presentations and various special projects and collaborative workshops from the capital and other cities.
Experience 2 follows the first stage Preamble, which Norma Rodriguez Derivet, president of the National Council of Visual Arts (CNAP), described as a success on account of its excellent results.
Biennial director Nelson Ramirez de Arellano said in turn that Preamble proved that the Biennial is alive, made with few resources but with a great deal of dignity.
Helping Cuban artists gain momentum is one of the Biennial’s sustainability strategies, devised to raise more and more awareness of humankind’s negative impact on the planet.
All Cuban artists were invited to take part in a far-reaching program of exhibitions and actions coordinated by the Wifredo Lam Contemporary Art Center and the Center for the Development of Visual Arts (CDAV).
Among the main activities is the group exhibition Disonancias, to be opened on December 9 at the CADV, and the return on the 12th of the popular project Detrás del muro (Behind the Wall), which will feature the works of Cuban artists nationwide.
The coming months will see other events within the framework of Experience 2, scheduled to finish on March 25, 2022 and make way for Regreso al Porvenir (Back to the Future) until April 30, when this 24th Havana Biennial will come to an end.
