Factoría Habana
Exhibition of artist René Francisco’s works at the gallery during 2015 Art Biennial

Opened in December 2009 by a Spanish art aficionado Concha Fontenla, this spacious art gallery on O’Reilly Street in Old Havana is steadily making inroads in Havana art circles. Dedicated to promoting Cuba’s contemporary art, the gallery hosts an average of four exhibitions a year. These feature both established and up-and-coming Cuban artists, such as René Francisco, Rocio Garcia and Carlos Montes de Oca. Today, the gallery is at the forefront of Cuba’s experimental art, showing some of the edgiest works by young artists. Its experimental rein extends to physical infrastructure – artists typically make creative use of floors, walls and ceilings for two- and three-dimensional visual and conceptual presentation, and more. The gallery is closed on Mondays.
