While Rio received the art fair ArtRio last week, São Paulo also opened its doors to one of the most important art events in Brazil: the 31st São Paulo Biennial. As ever, the show features several Brazilian and international artists who represent the latest in contemporary art.  

This year's theme "How to talk about things that do not exist" addresses emotions that can only be expressed in art, thus proving its vital role in our society.  

What more can we expect from the Biennial? Hot topics such as abortion, the appropriation of the female body and free will. The collective Mujeres Creando will participate in a public performance against the dictatorship of patriarchy. A huge mobile uterus will exit the Biennial Pavilion and go out into the streets, promoting dialogue and discussion on subjects that remain controversial. 

 The event takes place at the headquarters of the São Paulo Biennial Foundation at Ibirapuera Park, and runs until December 7th. Put it in your calendar - or on your ticket to the city - and immerse yourself in the art world!
