Francisco Masó (Havana, 1988) is an Afro-Cuban, American visual artist living and working in Miami. Maso’s artwork delves into the contemporary understanding of socially shaped “unconscious behaviors” and challenges what is accepted by society as natural, necessary, and normal. Key projects include: Post PostProduction Project (2012-2015), that explored the audiovisual piracy phenomenon and its social implications; Aesthetic Register of Covert Forces, a geometric archive of striped polo shirts worn by the undercover political police in Cuba; and Obtuse Exercises for Dissenting Bodies, a study of the positions assumed by dissident bodies in relation to “police control dispositive.”
Maso holds a Bachelor’s degree in Stage Design from the Instituto Superior de Arte (2014) and is a graduate of both the Behavior Art School (2009), led by Tania Bruguera, and the San Alejandro Academy of Fine Arts (2007).
