Solange Farkas, director of the Contemporary Art Biennial Sesc_Videobrasil announces the cancellation of the event’s coming edition, initially scheduled to open in October 2021, curated by Raphael Fonseca (Brazil) and Renée Mboya (Kenya). The Biennial was preparing to announce the Open Call for artists from the Global South in June. The new dates will be announced according to the developments of the pandemic and the reorganization of the cultural sector. “The practical and ethical implications associated with the outbreak of the novel Coronavirus, aggravated by the borderline situation of the Brazilian scenario, were crucial for this decision. It is impossible to plan an exhibition of this magnitude in the face of a government that disrespects culture, the press and the democratic institutions on a daily basis,” says the director.
