About the artist

Born in Holguín in 1960, René Francisco is one of the most important contemporary Cuban artists. He attended the ISA (Instituto Superior de Arte) from 1977 to 1982, the year of his diploma. In 1989 he became a teacher there and was very popular because of his unorthodox methods. Experimentation, pedagogy and community intervention define for René Francisco a work which is used as an agent of transformation and which constitutes a tool for his power of mobilization.

René Francisco is an artist who has worked extensively for the cause of conceptual art and community development. To him, art is a means of research and social transformation, a way of transgressing the conscience of peoples, as an object of denunciation which is based on sciences such as sociology and psychology. Thus René Francisco leaves the traditional framework of the exhibition, modifies his language and goes in search of experimentation, community intervention and the bases of a teaching attempting to bring together pedagogy, art and life.

He has participated in numerous solo and group exhibitions in the United States, Central and South America, China and Europe. He notably participated in the Venice Biennale in 1999 and 2007, the 26th Sao Paulo Biennial in 2004, the 2nd Thessaloniki Biennale in 2009 and his participations since 1997 have not been counted at the Havana Biennials.
