OUR STORY

N O R ( B E R T ) O inc. is an idea studio started by artist + creator Norberto Rodriguez, who has built his career by pushing himself + his creativity to it’s furthest limits.

Born + raised in Miami by Cuban immigrants, he began his career at 18, as a multi-disciplinary, conceptual artist known for his continuously daring + innovative practice. He worked in all media + genre including installation, performance, photography, sculpture, digital, music, film + tenderness. In 1995 he performed Lookin’ For Love, marrying a complete stranger for the duration of one calendar year. In 2008, for the Whitney Museum in NY, he created the month long In The Beginning… where guests were invited to spend 45 minutes with the artist in a seamless white cube designed on the inside to mimic a therapist’s office. His most celebrated project to date, the Bert Rodriguez Museum was created for preserving the most exhaustive collection of artifacts surrounding the late artist Bert Rodriguez, who is also the subject of a feature documentary Making Sh*t Up, due for public release winter 2017.

Building on his almost 25 years as an acclaimed fine artist, Rodriguez is innovating even further with creative ideas that go far beyond the art ecosystem. In addition to running N O R ( B E R T ) O inc studios, he serves as the director for two experimental museum concepts, BRM + MoMM. Rodriguez also hosts #NoRespect, a talk show where guests visit the studio to discuss sometimes personal topics + issues that affect us all. He also shares his ongoing journey on social media + through his daily vlog #IRBF (I'd Rather Be Fishing). Currently, Rodriguez is developing A School Of Thought, A laboratory for exploring ideas which give life meaning. Also under development are #HighArt, A podcast where art, culture + cannabis intersect, + the highly anticipated Iron Artist, A game show where artists compete to create work based on a secret material, concept / theme.
