São Paulo - Biennial

Participants and Projects

31st Bienal de São Paulo

06 Sep 201407 Dec 2014

The exhibition part of the Bienal will contain more than 81 projects, produced by about 100 participants and totalling around 250 artworks.

The word ‘project’ is intended to create a distance from the traditional idea of an autonomous artwork made in a studio by an artist. By using this word, we can introduce a broader range of contemporary cultural practices and include people working in other disciplines, such as educators, sociologists, architects, performers.

The term also serves to encourage collaboration and trans-disciplinary ways of working amongst the Bienal participants. Each project is an independent contribution but may consist of many artworks by individual or collective authorship. More than half the projects have been made specifically for this Bienal, many by international artists who have produced work in response to a residency in the city and the opportunity to travel further in Brazil.
