The 35th São Paulo Biennial, which takes place from September 6 to December 10, 2023 under the title 'Choreographies of the impossible', emerges as an invitation to radical imagination about the unknown, or even about the impossible.
In the words of the curatorial team, made up of Diane Lima, Grada Kilomba, Hélio Menezes and the Spanish Manuel Borja-Villel. the term choreography is used to highlight the practice of drawing sequences of movements through time and space, generating multiple and new fractions, forms, images and possibilities, despite infeasibility and denial. They are interested in the rhythms, tools, strategies and technologies, as well as all the symbolic, economic and legal procedures that extradisciplinary knowledge is capable of promoting, thus producing flight, denial and its poetic exercises. As a curatorial proposal, Choreographies of the Impossible enunciates a space for experimentation - open to dances of the unimaginable - that embodies movements capable of transforming the apparently non-existent into the existing.
AC/E supports the participation of Spanish artists.
As well as a selection of works belonging to the collection of the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía by some of the Spanish artists mentioned and others, selected for their connection to the theme of this event.
