The Brazilian art scene will be really active in September



The "Festival Internacional de Arte Contemporáneo SESC_Videobrasil, organised by SESC - Servicio Social de Comercio and the Associação Cultural Videobrasil", has invited Olafur Eliasson as a special guest for its 17th edition which will start on 30 September. The curator is Solange Farkas. "Your body of work"is the title of this body of work which comprises 10 installations in Sao Paulo. It looks like an amazing work and I'd love to see it.

More news from the Brazilian art scene includes the start of the 8th edition of the Mercosul Biennial of Brazil on 10th September. The curator of the event is José Ignacio Roca. It will take place until November 15, and will gather between 107 artists from 34 countries, which makes it the most international edition held so far. Under the title "Testing Geopoética" the artists will discuss the topics such as colonization, border, customs, transnational alliances, geopolitical construction, location, scientific travelers, nation and politics.
