BIENALSUR Open Call for Artists and Curators

From February 15 to April 30 2020

The General and Artistic Direction of BIENALSUR invites artists and curators to submit artistic and curatorial research projects to be included in the program of its third edition, which will take place in different venues in an extended and multipolar territory simultaneously integrating the South American countries and others from Africa, Asia, Europe, and Central and North America.

The proposals have to fall within the scope of contemporary art and culture theories with a view to analysing, questioning and providing new perspectives of and insights into a diversity of experiences of contemporary life.

Curators and artists of any nationality can register individually or in groups.

BIENALSUR is a project organized by the UNTREF (Universidad Nacional de Tres de Febrero de Buenos Aires), an Argentine public university. Among other objectives, the project seeks to contribute to the creation of a cultural citizenship from South America.

Through its format and working modality, BIENALSUR expects the art of each region to be integrated not just as a mere diversity quota, but on an equal footing on the basis of their singularities and relative positions. Therefore, one of the objectives of this project is the creation of a space for the development of critical thinking independent of the major canonical narratives. Additionally, this biennial seeks to promote the emergence of alternative practices within the world of art and culture in terms of the generation of ideas and works as well as their exhibition, circulation and consumption modalities.
