Louis Vuitton brought stars of the international art scene to Havana's 12th Biennale, which opened last month. The city-wide festival sought to illuminate beautiful but neglected areas of Havana, and the artists were tasked to celebrate Cuba's cultural history.

The Louis Vuitton program focused on the theme of “Between the Idea and Experience" where performances were sometimes held in historic buildings around Havana.

The greater purpose behind the Biennale is that art can foster change and new ideas in regions where freedoms have been repressed.
