Emerging Artist Award
Milton Raggi Vinueza (b. 1991) is a Cuban visual artist, curator and art professor. He studied at the National Academy of Fine Arts San Alejandro (2006-2010) in Havana, and graduated from Universidad de las Artes de Cuba, ISA (2011-2017), where he currently works as a professor of contemporary art.
In his artistic projects, Raggi works with themes and concepts related to the dynamics of power and control, systems and hierarchies. His works use technological platforms and generally take the form of audiovisual performance and immersive installations with a high interactive component.
In 2013 he founded AXIS Visual Lab, an interdisciplinary audiovisual experimentation group focused on working with new technologies applied to art. Since 2017, with the support of the Ludwig Foundation of Cuba, he’s developed the Laboratories of Art and Technology (LAT) project, to promote actions, workshops and exchange spaces that contribute to the training of other creators and new audiences.
