We are pleased to announce the World Biennial Forum No 2.

The 5-day event, from November 26 to 30, 2014, will be composed of thematic debates open to the public, internal workshops for biennial organizers on practical aspects of biennial work, as well as optional guided tours of exhibition venues in the city of São Paulo.

The Forum’s practice is to work as a partnership, hosted first by the Gwangju Biennale in South Korea (World Biennial Forum No 1 “Shifting Gravity”, 2012). The World Biennial Forum No 2 will be organized in collaboration with Fundação Bienal de São Paulo and ICCo – Instituto de Cultura Contemporânea.  It will take place during the 31st Bienal de São Paulo, curated by Charles Esche, Galit Eilat, Nuria Enguita Mayo, Pablo Lafuente, Luiza Proença, Oren Sagiv and Benjamin Seroussi, who will also function as the Forum’s artistic directors.

A preview launch of the World Biennial Forum No 2 is scheduled to take place in Berlin, Germany, during the First General Assembly of the International Biennial Association (IBA) at ifa Gallery on July 12, 2014.
