Open Call BIENALSUR for Artists and Curators


We stay home, we keep creating

The General and Artistic Direction of BIENALSUR invites artists and curators to present projects of works and research curatorship to integrate the programming of its third edition. From July to September 2021 it will take place in different venues and spaces located in an expanded and multipolar territory that simultaneously integrates the countries of South America, and others in Africa, Asia, Europe and Central and North America,.

The proposals will have to be situated within the horizon of contemporary theories of art and culture in search of contributing to reflecting, problematizing or giving other views and approaches to the multiplicity of life experiences of our time.

Artists and curators of any nationality, individually or collectively, may submit their proposals until May 15, 2020.

BIENALSUR is a project carried out by UNTREF (Universidad Nacional de Tres de Febrero de Buenos Aires), an Argentinean public university;  one of its purposes is to contribute from the South to the creation of a cultural citizenship.

Its format and operation seeks to ensure that the art of each region is not integrated as a mere quota of diversity, but is presented on an equal footing based on  singularities and relative positions. For this reason, among the objectives that animate this project, the constitution of a space that contributes to the development of critical thought with autonomy with respect to the great canonical stories stands out. It also seeks to promote the emergence of alternative practices within the world of art and culture both in the production of ideas and works and in their modes of exhibition, circulation and consumption.
