Rachel Valdés

Rachel Valdés lives and works between Madrid and Havana. He has created important public art projects, among which his participation in the Havana Biennial stands out during the years 2012, 2015 and 2019. The last work created for this Biennial, Immersion, was acquired and permanently installed as cultural heritage of the city.

Her work is part of several private and public collections, including The Donald Rubin Foundation (New York), The Rockefeller Brothers Foundation (New York), Pérez Museum (PAMM) (Miami) or Fundación Calosa (Mexico).

In 2016, Valdés received the first prize, awarded by The Rockefeller Brothers Foundation and The Cuban Art Fund, exhibiting her first public art work in New York City, titled The Beginning of the End. Exposed for two months in Times Square, this piece had a great reception and impact. It is estimated that more than two million people passed through the work. “It was an interactive installation made with different mirrors that generated new ways of observing the urban space”, explains the artist. "The piece allowed the viewer to walk through it, creating new perspectives to understand our relationship with the environment in which we live."
