The site-specific works, performances and installations of Humberto Díaz range from micro interventions to highly ambitious environments that are visually and spatially impacting. Díaz is interested in creating a tense relationship between spectator/public and object/environment.
He graduated from Havana’s renowned ISA (Instituto Superior de Arte) in 2002 and has exhibited widely in Europe and the United States. In 2015, Díaz joined the Bronx Museum as an artist-in-residence as part of the cultural exchange initiative Wild Noise: Artwork from The Bronx Museum of the Arts and El Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes, organized with El Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes, Havana, Cuba.
