The second edition of the “Bienal del Sur, Pueblos en Resistencia”, starts this Sunday, December 3rd, at the Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Caracas (MACC). Featuring 35 countries from the so-called Global South, including China, Egypt, Palestine, Kyrgyzstan and the Bahamas, the exhibition intends to promote a dialogue capable of “transforming the structures of power of the international art scene”.
Among the 30 Venezuelan artists and 51 international participating artists, three Brazilian names appear: those of Lucas Bambozi, João Carlos Fernandes, and Julio Leite. The latter, a PIPA Prize 2011 nominee, will be presenting his series “Projeto para um novo mundo” [Project for a new world], which transmutes colours of national flags from around the world.
Asides from the exhibition itself, which showcases works in painting, sculpture, photography, installation, performance, and many other, the three-month event also includes open talks, guided tours, film screenings and free workshops with the participating artists.
