Mai 36 Galerie presents new works by Cuban artist Flavio Garciandía. Having previously included this artist in the 2012 group exhibition IB 6621 alongside Michel Peréz Pollo and Raúl Cordero, the gallery is now hosting a solo exhibition of his work for the first time.
Flavio Garciandía (born 1954 in Caibarién, Cuba) is one of Cuba’s leading and most influential artists and is regarded as one of the fathers of Central and South American conceptual art. Garciandía, who lives and works in Mexico City, was a key figure on the vibrant Cuban art scene of the late 1970s and 1980s. In 1984 he was a co-founder of the Havana Biennal and in 1986 he was a participating artist at the Biennale di Venezia. In his capacity as a professor at the prestigious Instituto Superior de Arte (ISA) in Havana, Garciandía became a teacher and mentor to a new generation of Cuban artists.
