Buenos Aires, May 22 (Prensa Latina) Moved by the premise of thinking about possible futures in the face of the pandemic, the International Biennial of Contemporary Art of the South (BienalSur) will hold its second virtual meeting with guests from seven countries on Saturday.
Just at 12:00 local time, via streaming, directors, cultural agents and artists from Portugal, France, Brazil, Uruguay, Colombia, Ecuador and Argentina will join the initiative, in which they will deepen their views and perspectives on art in the face of the challenges of a different future, following a virus that forced the closure of museums.
