DAGOBERTO RODRÍGUEZ

SELECTED WORK

(Cuba, 1969) is a multidisciplinary artist graduated from Instituto Superior de Arte (ISA), La Habana in 1994. In 1992 he co-founded the collective Los Carpinteros, and after more than two decades of working together and gathering worldwide recognition, they decided to split ways and continue working individually. In his work he combines architecture, design and sculpture, and integrates humour and irony to comment on core topics about art, politics and society. For Rodríguez the technique of watercolour is an important part of his creative process, since it is a way of registering and revising his ideas. In his works he often reflects situations that are on the limits of reality and fantasy, but only to reinforce meticulously well formulated critiques about society and civilization.

 

His works have been exhibited in museums and cultural institutions around the world and are part of prominent public collections, such as MOMA; Whitney Museum of American Art; Guggenheim New York; Centre Georges Pompidou; Tate Modern and Museo Centro de Arte Reina Sofía, among many others. He lives and works between Madrid and La Habana.
