Artist-curators reveal their exhibition proposals for the 33rd Bienal de São Paulo
April 27, 2018
Appointed by the Fundação Bienal de São Paulo as curator of the 33rd Bienal de São Paulo — Affective affinities, Gabriel Pérez-Barreiro proposes an alternative "operating system" that favors the artists’ gaze on their own creative contexts and avoids a large thematic exhibition in favor of a Bienal that invites multiple curatorial experiences.
As well the twelve individual projects previously announced, this edition includes group shows organized by seven artist-curators, including Antonio Ballester Moreno and Waltercio Caldas, who have now revealed their proposals and a partial list of participating artists.
