Fundação Bienal de São Paulo

  • 1 Ausstellung

The Fundação Bienal de São Paulo is a vibrant institution that conceives and implements artistic, educational and social initiatives. In addition to producing the event that energizes the art world every two years, it holds activities all year round in a pavilion that is emblematic of Brazilian modernist architecture as well as inside and outside of Brazil. A cultural institution with no political or religious affiliations, the Fundação Bienal seeks to introduce new ideas, provoke debates and educate the eye of the public with an ever-renewing sense of restlessness, purpose and questioning.

Founded by businessman Francisco Matarazzo Sobrinho (also known as Ciccillo) on May 8, 1962, the institution also houses a historical archive on modern and contemporary art seen as a benchmark in Latin America. The aim of the institution is to democratize access to culture and stimulate interest in artistic creation. Activities include guided tours of the exhibitions, training sessions for teachers, in-person and distance courses, lectures and seminars.
