From March 15th to May 27th, 2022, the Open Call for the presentation of projects for the 4th edition of BIENALSUR will take place.
The General and Artistic Direction of BIENALSUR -International Biennial of Contemporary Art of the South organised by the Universidad Nacional de Tres de Febrero (UNTREF), an Argentine public university- announces a call for artists, curators and curatorial research projects to be included in the program of its fourth edition, to be held in 2023 in different venues -museums, cultural centres, universities and non-traditional spaces- in large cities and small towns of different countries.
The International Call for BIENALSUR 2023 will be open from March 15th to May 27th, 2022. Applications will be submitted online, through a specially designed application platform available in Spanish and English.
During this period, projects that fall within the scope of contemporary theories of art and culture will be eligible for consideration in an attempt to contribute to reflecting upon, problematizing or providing other views and approaches to the multiplicity of life experiences of our time.
This new Call to participate in BIENALSUR is open to artists and curators of any nationality, regardless of gender, age or other category, who may present their work individually or collectively.
One of the purposes of BIENALSUR is to contribute to the creation of a cultural citizenship from the south of the world. Its particular format and collaborative approach seek to integrate the art of each region into the international scene not just as a mere diversity quota, but on an equal footing based on its singularities and relative positions. Therefore, one of the objectives of this project is the creation of a space that contributes to the development of critical thinking beyond the major canonical narratives. It also aims 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 exhibition, circulation and consumption modalities.
