Havana Biennale: Between the Idea and Experience

Various venues

Opening 22 May – 22 June 2015

Established in 1984, this years biennale focuses on the art of performance. From dance, film, theatre, music and literature, this show won’t be your conventional gallery biennale aimed at collectors. There isn’t a central venue or a grand opening show. Havana Biennale 2015 would rather succeed in making connections throughout the city. Art will be spilling out of the venues and galleries and into the streets. There will be more than 200 artists from 44 countries.
