The 10th Mercosul Biennial, Messages from a New America features Paul Ramírez Jonas. The Biennial opens in Porto Alegre on Oct 8, 2015 and runs through Nov 22, 2015.
The 10th Mercosul Biennial curatorial project is titled Messages From a New America and focuses only on the art of Latin America, reigniting the initial mission expressed by Frederico Moraes, curator of the 1st Biennial, to “re-write the history of Latin American art from a non-Eurocentric perspective.”
The 10th Biennial is conceived around four major conceptual fields over seven exhibitions dealing with several aspects of Latin American art. Those fields and exhibitions include: The Journey of Adversity (exhibitions on this section are: The Biography of Urban Life and Modernism in Parallax); The Insurgence of the Senses (exhibitions are: Neobaroque Anthropophagy, Olfactory: Smell in Art and Body Apparatuses); The Undeleting of the Tropics (exhibitions are: Dust and the World of Objects and Marginália of Form); and The Journey Continues (including the Experimental School of Curating and the Educational Project).
