Havana Biennial 2019: Constructing the Possible Ocula Report Havana Biennial 2019: Constructing the Possible 17 Apr 2019 : Federica Bueti for Ocula

I first visited Havana in November 2016, a few days after Fidel Castro died, and just under a year before Hurricane Irma hit Cuba in September 2017. Since then, much has changed, including the hand-painted signs that punctuate the journey from the airport to the city centre, which today do not celebrate the revolution so much as the 'Unidad y...

Daniel Boyd

b. 1982, Australia

Daniel Boyd was born in Cairns in 1982, and has been exhibiting his work nationally and internationally since 2005. His identification with the Kudjla/Gangalu peoples has come to inform his work which considers Eurocentric perspectives on Australian history and the ethics of colonisation. His work exposes themes of inheritance and explore the effects of memory and time on the interpretation of images. He frequently uses pastels in a reduced palette of predominantly black, white, and grey, to create scenes made out of lots of small dots on a canvas. The reduced, monochromatic palette alludes to the sadness of events in the past and the personal implications of these events on Boyd, in the present.

Daniel Boyd Related Press Daniel Boyd Art Almanac : 29 June 2017

Daniel Boyd's paintings, installations, moving image works and artist books are about a relationship to time and space. He is cognisant of the information they contain but a greater ambition is to demonstrate that the nature of perception is not absolute.

With this in mind, we invited a cross-section of artists, curators and writers to answer two deceptively simple questions: ‘How important is art as a form of protest?’ and ‘How effective is it as a conduit of change?’ Responses...

For an international art fair rookie (like me) Art Basel Hong Kong (ABHK) was hard to get your head around. Held across two large floors of the sophisticated but sterile Hong Kong...
