Born in 1989 in Havana, Cuba. Lives and works between New York and Miami.
Rafael Domenech conceives objects colliding in space, organizing a sequence of artworks with physical or theoretical connections into a larger system, especially their own fabrication. His work explores how the artwork itself is part of an ecosystem of practices outside the studio into the institution and world beyond art and is a story of human relationships before aesthetic considerations. Situated at the forefront of artists who are redefining the exhibition experience, Rafael Domenech creates architectural interventions which intersect publishing methodologies such as cutting, redacting, revising, and circulation as research tactics to amplify his interest in the exhibition model as an active machine for production rather than a repository space.
His work has been exhibited at the Carnegie Museum of Art, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania; SculptureCenter, Long Island City; Socrates Sculpture Park, Long Island City; The Storefront for Art and Architecture, New York; The Bass Museum, Miami Beach; Phillip and Patricia Frost Art Museum, Miami; ICA VCU Museum, Richmond, Virginia; Artium Museum, Vitoria, Spain; MIT List Museum, Cambridge, Massachusetts; and Passerelle Centre d’art contemporain, Brest, France.
