Ricardo Brey is a Cuban visual artist, he lives and works in Ghent, Belgium.

His artistic practice debuted in the 1970s and 1980s when he was an active member of the group Volumen I, also known today as the new generation of avant-garde artists in Cuba after the revolution of 1959.

The invitation to participate in Documenta IX in Kassel was another starting point for Brey and led to his permanent move to Belgium.

Among many recognitions Brey received in 1998 the Prize from the Flemish Ministry of Culture and a Guggenheim Fellowship for installation Art and Sculpture.

From 2002 onwards, Brey dedicated himself to the development and presentation of large and complex projects such as  “Universe”, “Annex”  and “Every life is a fire”  that was presented, entirely, as part of the  56th International Art Exhibition – la Biennale di Venezia, All the World’s Futures.
