The São Paulo Biennial opened in september its 35th edition today under the title Choreographies of the Impossible. The exhibition emerges as an invitation to radical imagination about the unknown. Or even the impossible.
As a result of the dialogue that arose from the ZABAL programme, the work "Portrait of Doña Catalina de Erauso, the Nun Ensign" will be the Basque presence at the most important Biennial on the American continent and one of the most important in the world.
Three of the four curators of the 35th Biennial, Manuel Borja-Villel, Diane Lima and Hélio Menezes, were able to see Juan van der Hamen´s work last year during a visit to the Basque Country as part of the ZABAL programme.
The portrait was part of the exhibition ´A Voice for Erauso. Epilogue for a Trans Time´ at Azkuna Zentroa-Alhóndiga Bilbao, which showed the work of the artistic collective Cabello/Carceller (Helena Cabello and Ana Carceller) under the curatorship of Paul B. Preciado.
