Bienal de La Habana

11 May - 11 June / Havana

Founded in 1984 and initially conceived as a competition, the Art Biennial has gradually assumed a greater level of importance and prestige. Every two years, Havana swarms with artists, critics, curators, dealers, collectors, and art lovers from all over the world. A wide-ranging presentation takes over all the city’s principal galleries and spills out into numerous public arenas transforming the city into the largest gallery in the world. Under the slogan of “Artistic Practices and Social Imaginaries,” the 2012 Biennial hopes to explore the different meanings of “public” taking into account interventions in urban spaces. www.bienalhabana.cult.cu
