The Havana Biennial has announced its 13th edition, taking place from April 12 to May 12, 2019. It is organized around the theme “La construcción de lo posible” [The Construction of the Possible]. The 13th Biennial of Havana [XIII Bienal de La Habana], to be held on April 12 to May 12, 2019, aims at encouraging interaction between creators, curators, experts and institutions in a wide range of works that would contribute to alternatives for sustainability without disregarding the propositional nature every art work or project contains in itself.
