South America


Sao Paulo Biennial
September 25-December 12
Sao Paulo, Brazil

For its 29th edition, the Sao Paulo Biennial Foundation expects that around 1 million visitors will attend the event this fall in Brazil. The biggest art biennial in South America soon to celebrate its 60th anniversary, will explore the notion that it is impossible to separate art from politics. Its title, "There is always a cup of sea to sail in," a quote borrowed from the Brazilian poet Jorge de Lima's major work "Invenção de Orfeu" ("The Invention of Orpheus") (1952), highlights the utopian dimension of art contained within itself.
