With the title The Atlantic Triangle, the 11th Mercosul Visual Arts Biennial intents to shed light onto the triangle that, for over 500 years, connects the destinies of America, Africa, and Europe.
Bringing together 70 artists and artist collectives – as well as punctual actions performed in Quilombo communities located in the cities of Porto Alegre and Pelotas –, the exhibition occurs from April 6 to June 3, 2018, in the spaces of the Museu de Arte do Rio Grande do Sul [Rio Grande do Sul Art Museum], Memorial do Rio Grande do Sul [Rio Grande do Sul Memorial], Praça da Alfândega [“Customs” Public Square], and Igreja Nossa Senhora das Dores [Our Lady of Sorrows Church], all within the historic district of Porto Alegre.
Based on the historic references postulated during the exhibition’s production, the project features works and artists from the three continents that compose the Atlantic Triangle. Making these artists the protagonists of an exploration of cultural relations and the interdependency within such a triangulation, the exhibition seeks, among other issues, to analyze what are the innovative forces that mobilize the interaction between America, Africa, and Europe.
