31st São Paulo Biennale
The 31st Bienal de São Paulo is being developed by an international team of curators – Charles Esche, Galit Eilat, Nuria Enguita Mayo, Pablo Lafuente and Oren Sagiv that started working in August 2013 and is concentrating over the next months on the research, selection, production and arrangement of the Bienal at the pavilion in Ibirapuera Park.
There is currently no fixed theme or organising device for the Bienal. Instead of predetermining the nature or meaning of artistic practice, the curators have drawn up some provisional interests and will rely on research, exchanges and conversations in the months to come in order to shape the event. This process, which is intended to be accessible throughout, is grounded on a series of open meetings across Brazil and elsewhere, the workshop on cultural organisation announced here, and intense travels in Brazil and Latin America.
