Yaima Carrazana (b. 1981 in Santiago de Cuba) — trained initially as a painter at the San Alejandro National Academy of Arts (2000—2003) in her native Cuba, she moves freely among various media and formats such as painting, video, photography, performance and installation. Throughout this range of media, Carrazana’s work stands out for the way it engages in a highly informed yet frequently irreverent dialogue with the history and discourse of contemporary art. Creating work that explores the unstable limits between what is considered art and what is not, Carrazana weaves a delicate web of commentary on the contexts — political, cultural, gender—based — that determine the way art is received and interpreted in today‘s globalized art world.
Her work has been exhibited in the Wilhelm—Hack—Museum (Ludwigshafen am Rhein, 2012), Kunsthal KAdE (Amersfoort, 2012), 12th Istanbul Biennial (2011), the Haifa Museum of Modern Art, Mudam—Luxembourg, the Fondation Cartier, the 2011 Liverpool Biennial, the 2008 Gwangju Biennial and the Museum of Contemporary Art in Tokyo.
In 2010, she completed two years residency program at the Rijksakademie van beeldende kunsten, Amsterdam.
She lives and works in Amsterdam.
