He also holds a degree in International Relations from the Higher Institute of International Relations in Cuba. David founded Darkroom Boston in 2015, a project to display photography using unconventional forms at alternative spaces and to combine photography with other artistic expressions. His passion for innovation in the arts has led him to collaborate on a variety of projects and exhibitions as a photographer and curator in Boston. He is the co-founder of A R E A, an alternative to the contemporary art gallery.

Together, the artists will discuss local and global questions of justice by examining LGBT issues in Cuba, as well as teen subcultures. - See more at:
