Bienal de Sao Paulo announces preliminary artist list for its 32nd year

Titled Incerteza viva [Live Uncertainty], the 32nd Bienal de São Paulo means to reflect on the current conditions of life and the strategies offered by contemporary art to harbor or inhabit uncertainty. The exhibition will be held from September 10 to December 12, 2016 at the Ciccillo Matarazzo Pavilion, featuring approximately 90 artists and collectives, 54 of which are announced below. “Art feeds off uncertainty, chance, improvisation, speculation and, at the same time, it attempts to count the uncountable and measure the immeasurable. It makes room for error, for doubt and risk - even for ghosts and the most profound misgivings within all of us, but without evading or manipulating them,” says curator Jochen Volz. Co-curators Gabi Ngcobo (South Africa), Júlia Rebouças (Brazil), Lars Bang Larsen (Denmark) and Sofía Olascoaga (Mexico) round out the curatorial team.
