Profile

The Cuenca Biennial belongs to a select group of macro events established in Latin America and the Caribbean.

The Cuenca Biennial belongs to a select group of macro events established in Latin America and the Caribbean. From an eminently pictorial biennial at its beginning, this event has made progressive strides toward admitting other disciplines, manifestations and media, assuming the challenge that the present imposes on expository programs of its type.

The Biennial of Cuenca, Ecuador, continues its consolidation process as a forum open to all expressions of contemporary plastic arts with no reservations regarding format or medium. Under this premise the Biennial has taken solid steps toward a renewed cultural policy committed to principles of artistic integration that do not limit themselves to holding imposing exhibitions every two years, but that arrange continuous programs of dissemination of an educational and theoretical nature to sponsor an effective introduction to contemporary artistic manifestations for all segments of the community.
