33rd São Paulo Biennial Pays Attention to Art

November 12th, 2018 · Comments

For the 33rd São Paulo Biennial, curator Gabriel Pérez-Barreiro challenges the norm. Rather than explore an overarching theme, he invited seven artists to curate exhibitions featuring their own art. Likewise, the twelve solo projects that he curated suggest we look closely at individual creative practices. Purposefully choosing not to direct our gaze, this biennial allows us to explore freely, to discover for ourselves the power of contemporary art.

Biennial programming builds on this notion in a free audio guide, a digital publication that proposes viewing exercises and an international, public symposium. The three-day event brings together artists, scientists, critics, writers, and scholars for a deep dive into one of the major issues of our time: attention. Who controls it, why and how are just a few of the questions to be considered…

Franklin Sirmans on the Art of Fútbol

April 16th, 2018 · Comments

Art and Sports? Curator Franklin Sirmans brings them together in The World’s Game exhibition at the Perez Art Museum, Miami. Immersive installations, paintings, sculptural objects, photographs and videos by forty artists reveal how the universal language of this transnational game can define beauty, make social statements, create a sense of community and express a shared passion. Timed to coincide with the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia, the exhibition celebrates soccer as the portal to a world of contemporary art.

Sao Paulo Biennal-Jolt Radio-7Sep2016

September 7th, 2016 · Comments

Today, we’re sharing one of the three shows we broadcast this month on Jolt Radio, Miami, from inside the exhibition pavilion of the 32ndSão Paulo Biennial! Our special guest is Pia Lindman, an artist from Finland whose project Nose Ears Eyes centers on the hut made of mud and bamboo that you see in the photo gallery below. Later in the show, Eduardo Navarro, an artist from Argentina, drops in to our ad hoc studio, to talk about his Sound Mirror. Pia and Eduardo are two of the biennial artists whose projects connect conceptually and physically with Ibirapuera Park, a gorgeous urban green space that surrounds the exhibition pavilion designed by the legendary architect Oscar Niemeyer.

Today, we share our first-ever Fresh Art International radio broadcast, recorded live in Brazil! For three days only, we were livestreaming from inside the São Paulo Biennial pavilion on Jolt Radio. Our new hour-long show expands on conversations about creativity that we’ve been recording with contemporary artists, curators, filmmakers, and architects since 2011 for the Fresh Art International podcast.

The cultural context for our remote broadcast is Incerteza VivaLive Uncertainty. The title and theme of the 32nd biennial exhibition revolves around the political, social, and environmental uncertainties of contemporary life. Today’s show features participating artists Eduardo Navarro (Argentina); Ebony G. Patterson (Jamaica), and artist collective Opivivaro! (Brazil), as well as activists from the Aparelhamento movement, a group or artists protesting current politics in Brazil.

We hope you enjoy the show!
