In a new partnership with the Fundação Bienal de São Paulo, the Museo de Antioquia is holding the last stage of the program of traveling shows of the 33rd Bienal de São Paulo – Affective Affinities. The show in Medellín will feature about 40 artworks by artists including Antonio Ballester Moreno, Feliciano Centurión, Katrín Sigurdardóttir, Matt Mullican, Mauro Restiffe and Sofia Borges.

The traveling exhibitions of the 33rd Bienal de São Paulo were conceived by curator Jacopo Crivelli Visconti  who is the chief curator for the upcoming Bienal. The new experiences were created in relation to the original project developed by the chief curator of the 33rd Bienal, Gabriel Pérez-Barreiro.

The exhibitions in 2019 do not literally replicate what has been seen at the last Bienal. Instead, they represent different associations and relations based on selections of artworks and artists.

About the Traveling Exhibitions 

The program of traveling shows with selections of artworks from the Bienal de São Paulo is an initiative that is in its fifth edition this year. For the traveling exhibitions of the 33rd Bienal de São Paulo, partnerships were renewed or newly established with the Secretariat of Culture, Sports and Leisure of Espírito Santo, the Museu Nacional da República, Fundação Iberê Camargo, Sesc SP, Fundação Clóvis Salgado and the Museu de Arte Murilo Mendes, all Brazilian institutions, as well as with the Museo de Antioquia, in Medellín, Colombia.

Besides the exhibitions, the partnership initiatives include public and educational programs aligned with the Fundação Bienal de São Paulo’s mission to integrate culture and education into daily life.
