"27TH BIENAL DE SAO PAULO" BRAZIL

Yesterday marked the end of the "27th Bienal de São Paulo's" (founded in 1951) main exhibition.

This year, 119 artists from all over the world participated in it; and we were fortunate to collaborate with Mexican artist Minerva Cuevas on her installation project for the exhibition.

On September, Minerva contacted us with some ideas for the illustrations she would later use in the Bienal. they were made by Mariana Moreno.



Minerva used Mariana's work as the base of her mural-installation. Minerva's work deals with the problems facing the Amazon jungle, the advance of men and devastation that has taken place in the 20th. century. In the installation you'll find Chico Mendes (which will be featured in the cover of the January, 2007 "Seminars" book, too), the Brazilian jungle defender who was killed to stop his actions.

It's been great working with one of the 4 Mexicans that took place in the Bienal, being Minerva a resident artist of it. Also, it's been great watching how Mariana is growing professionally, doing more complex things and projects, adapting herself to new challenges.

What a ride! :-)
