Guerreiro do Divino Amor has been selected to the 2024 Venice Biennale

(Venice, Italy)

Guerreiro do Divino Amor, winner of the PIPA Prize 2019, has been picked to do the Swiss Pavilion at the 2024 Venice Biennale, which will open in April of that year. The Swiss Pavilion is located in the Giardini, one of the two main areas of the Venice Biennale. Adriano Pedrosa, curator of Masp (Museu de Arte de São Paulo) will organize the main exhibition.

The artist’s project will be titled “Super Superior Civilizations” and will explore “the diverse entanglements of our globalized existence that have been impacted by aspects such as postcolonial distortion,” according to the pavilion’s announcement. It is part of a larger project by the artist known as “Superfictions” that involves digital elements, installations, films, and performative conferences and that he has presented at the PIPA Prize Finalists’ Exhibition in 2019, at Villa Aymoré, in Rio de Janeiro.

Guerreiro, Swiss-Brazilian, plans to work on the pavilion with the curator Andrea Bellini, the leader of the Centre d’Art Contemporain and the Biennale de l’Image en Mouvement in Geneva. At that museum, Bellini organized an exhibition of him last year.
