SAO PAULO.- The Fundação Bienal de São Paulo
announced the changes in the exhibition calendar of the 34th Bienal to protect the safety of visitors, artists and collaborators, in response to the challenges the whole world is facing during this delicate time.
The opening of the group exhibition of the 34th Bienal, initially planned for 5 September, will be postponed to 3 October 2020, and the closing date will be moved to 13 December. In addition, Clara Ianni's and Deana Lawsons solo exhibitions, as well as the performances authored by León Ferrari and Hélio Oiticica, which were originally going to take place between April and August, will be incorporated into the group show.
The Executive Board of the Fundação Bienal and the curators of the 34th Bienal are in communication with the partner institutions of this edition to keep the network of exhibitions that was planned together with these venues as intact as possible. More information about this calendar will be shared as soon as possible.
The public program activities, which have been taking place since last October, will resume when possible. In the meantime, content related to the 34th Bienal will be shared on the institution's website, social networks and via newsletters.
With its ability to move us and connect us to one another, art is more necessary now than ever. Fundação Bienal's teams are working (remotely) to find ways to enable the institution to contribute positively during this difficult time.
