RIERA STUDIO is an art space created in 2012 for art exhibitions, reflection and cultural dialogue. It recognises and studies the different dynamics and development of art made outside the mainstreams norms, its relationship with society and the social processes that inspire its creators. Our interest is focused on the promotion of a form of art produced by vulnerable social groups and others who develop their creative work away from established official arts institutions or mainstream art, but in response to a strong innate motivation and often working with non-conventional materials and techniques. Much of this singular art reflects extreme mental states, very individual idiosyncrasies or extravagant worlds of fantasy.  It is the only art space in Cuba that studies and promotes Outsider Art and Art Brut, singular art expressions that share a stylistic distance from the existing visual culture based on academic or intellectual training. RIERA STUDIO is also involved in art actions with a high community and social impact.
