AdriaNomada, born Adrián Morales Rodríguez (Havana, Cuba, 1965)

AdriaNomada studied mechanical engineering, earning a doctorate in aesthetics from the Sorbonne University in Paris under the tutelage of Jacques Derrida.

Researcher, visual artist, musician (composer and multi-instrumentalist) and curator, AdriaNomada is an interdisciplinary creator who constantly evokes a work close to Total Art: main exponent and protagonist of what is called today The Cuban Renaissance, the Generation of the Eighties. Pioneer of language multimedia, he left Cuba with the highest intellectual and professional training, fleeing censorship and political harassment. He is a communicator who moves in various disciplines and styles, both in art and in thought, and technology. Likewise within the field of visual music performance, a project that it begins almost simultaneously combining visual arts exhibitions and concerts since 1985.
