In an interview to Bienal, f.marquespenteado tells us about their participation on the 30th Bienal, their relation with embroidery and different identities
Last week, the team from the 30th Bienal Reading Room, visited Sarau Vila Fundão in the region of the Campo Limpo and Capão Redondo, neighbourhoods situated in the Southeast of São Paulo.
Ricardo Basbaum is an artist participating in the 30th Biennial and his definition of an “etc-artist” is an interesting point of departure for understanding his work and his role as an artist.
Luis Pérez-Oramas, general curator of the 30th Bienal, was among the guest curators for the 24th Bienal (1998). He was responsible for organising the special collection of his fellow countryman, Venezuelan artist, Armando Reverón.
One hundred thousand people visited the 1st Bienal in 1951. This figure doubled for the second edition in 1953 and the Bienal of Guernica saw an avid audience who waited expectantly at the doors for the exhibition to open.
