If you happen to be in São Paulo before December 9th, make sure to visit the 30th Bienal de São Paulo at the Bienal Pavillion in Ibirapuera Park. This year’s show sprawls across the three floors of the building, featuring a vast selection of pieces by Arthur Bispo do Rosário, as well as the largest compilation of pictures by photographer Alair Gomes I have seen in person. If that alone wasn’t worth the trip, the Museum of Modern Art next to the Bienal Pavillion is host to forty two works by Adriana Varejão, one of the most acclaimed Brazilian contemporary artists, in her first retrospective to date. The exhibit will be on display until December 16th, and it is the strongest show I have visited in São Paulo this year.
Admission to the 30th Bienal de São Paulo is free. View more pictures after the break.
