Havana Biennial

The Havana Biennial is one of Cuba’s, and in fact Latin America’s, most important and inspirational art festivals. It draws participation from hundreds of contemporary artists from around the globe, and is a magnet for many more art lovers and observers. Artworks are on display in in numerous galleries, museums, and public spaces throughout Havana. If you are in Havana at the time, even if you are unaware of the event being held, you will soon find out as you are most likely to end up seeing some of the exhibitions just by accident. The art presented is not limited just to paintings and sculptures but includes performance art as well.

The event was first held in 1984 as a competition for artists. It has since grown in both magnitude and statue, and has evolved into something more meaningful – perhaps the purpose the festival now serves is a coming together of creative minds and one of reflection – something which is no doubt enhanced with the setting of the streets and buildings of Havana, and the story behind them.

The 2019 Edition will present as many as 166 artists from 49 different countries.
