The 31st Bienal de São Paulo: "How to () Things that Don't Exist"
Posted on 6 October, 2014.
The World Biennial Forum No 2 is hosted by the 31st Bienal de São Paulo.
The 31st Bienal is curated by Charles Esche,
Galit Eilat, Nuria Enguita Mayo, Pablo Lafuente
and Oren Sagiv with associate curators Benjamin
Seroussi and Luiza Proença. The title - How to
() Things that Don't Exist is a poetic
invocation of art's ability to create new
objects, thoughts and possibilities.
In the 31st Bienal de São Paulo, we have tried to
bring together artists that tackle the
complexities of today when the end of the modern
meets the still uncertain beginnings of a new
system of thinking, the curatorial team states.
