After the opening of the 33rd Bienal de São Paulo – Affective Affinities, Fundação Bienal will hold, for the first time, an International Weekend aimed at meeting the needs of researchers and art professionals, as well as international groups from cultural institutions, universities and collections. The International Weekend will take place from September 21 to 23, and will be exclusively for accredited visitors based outside Brazil.

The program includes pre-scheduled visits that accredited participants will be able to choose from according to their own interests and availability during the morning and afternoon on Friday (Sept. 21), and Saturday (Sept. 22), and the afternoon on Sunday (Sept. 23).

These visits include pre-selected major cultural local institutions, prime private collections and guided visits to the 33rd Bienal de São Paulo by curator Gabriel Pérez-Barreiro and artist-curators. In the evening of September 20, some of the local contemporary art galleries will offer extended visiting hours, so participants can also enjoy the local commercial circuit,which usually presents the highlights of their programs during the Bienal.

The International Weekend has limited capacity. In order to register, please click here to fill in your information before August 20.
