Havana Biennial concludes with many lights
The 12th Havana Biennial ended yesterday with a very positive balance, especially with regard to attracting a massive and diverse audience.
With special emphasis on the aspect of social interaction of art, this time it wanted to link the common citizen to exhibitions, so plastic actions overflowed museums and galleries and invaded streets, squares, parks, neighborhoods and many other places unusual for that kind of direct contact.
To that we must add the amount of art critics, curators, artists and fans from almost everywhere, who since May 22 swarmed Havana and lived the experience of converting the visual arts in a mass and attraction phenomenon.
Havana hosted real giants of contemporary art, such as the American Joseph Kosuth, Italian Michelangelo Pistoletto, French Daniel Buren and Mexican Gabriel Orozco.
