XIV Cuenca Biennial discusses the relevance of plural visions in art

(Cuenca, Ecuador)

“Living structures. Art as a plural experience” is the main theme of XIV Cuenca Biennial, in Ecuador, which aims to discuss how art is related to plural aspects of life, such as aesthetically, sensoriallly, intellectually, emotionally, psychologically, but also politically, sociologically, and anthropologically. The biennial questions the role of museums towards contemporary art and how the European – and later North American – way of exhibting art imposes the world this form of ‘valuation, consecration and legitimization of the notion of “mastery”, of the formal and technical qualities of the art work; the advocacy of individual genius and of a model focused on receiving admiration and contemplation’.

The biennial, which will be on available until Febryary 3rd, is curated  by  Jesús Fuenmayor. Some Brazilian artists take place on the biennial, such as Marcius Galan, Laercio RedondoAna Mazzei, Felipe Meres, and Matheus Rocha Pitta.
