In face of the challenges faced by the whole world at this delicate moment, and as a result of intense dialog between the various governance bodies of the Fundação Bienal and the curatorship of the exhibition, we have adjusted the calendar of the 34th Bienal de São Paulo to protect the safety of visitors, artists and collaborators.
The opening of the group exhibition of the 34th Bienal, initially planned for September 5, will be postponed to October 3 2020, and the closing date will be moved to December 13. In addition, the exhibitions by Clara Ianni and Deana Lawson, as well as the performances authored by León Ferrari and Hélio Oiticica, which were to take place between April and August, will be incorporated into the group show.
We are in dialog with the partner institutions of this edition with the aim of maintaining, as much as possible, the network of exhibitions that was planned together with these venues . More information about this calendar will be shared as soon as possible.
The public program activities, which have been taking place since last October, will be resumed when possible. In the meantime, contents of the 34th Bienal will be shared on our website, social networks and via newsletters.
Art, with its capacity to establish connections and move us, is necessary now more than ever. Our teams are working (remotely) for the institution to contribute somehow, within its scope of action, during this difficult time.
We appreciate your support and understanding, and are looking forward to welcoming you in October.
Fundação Bienal de São Paulo
