This first edition began in 2016 with its Sur Global meetings - a platform for reflection on contemporary art -, and in 2017 with "... a vast repertoire of presences that give it a multiple and diverse character while converging in BIANALSUR. The result is this unique cartography that includes 16 countries, 32 cities and 84 venues in which proposals of more than 350 artists were located, mostly never exhibited before." --Page XVI. BIENALSUR simultaneously connects the public from the five continents. In 2017, this platform counted with the participation of over 400 artists and curators. The exhibitions are held in different museums, cultural centres, buildings and iconic areas of the public space. The biennial seeks to establish a global network of institutional associative collaboration that erases distances and borders and upholds singularity in diversity. With an unprecedented modality, BIENALSUR includes works and projects selected as a result of international open calls. The selection will be conducted by an International Curatorial Committee made up of prestigious professionals from different backgrounds. With its own cartography, a specific territory and itinerary, BIENALSUR reaches out to an expanded South America on a virtually planetary scale gathering artists and curators from the five continents. With MUNTREF (Museo de la Inmigración and Centro de Arte Contemporáneo) in the city of Buenos Aires as its Km 0 marker, The objective of the International Contemporary Art Biennial of South America is to establish a real presence of South America in the global art arena and contribute to the creation of a cultural citizenship. The 0 marker is the city of Buenos Aires, a hub that reaches out to a South American continent of a planetary-scale dimension, gathering artists and curators from the five continents. With venues in 32 cities from 16 countries, this new cartographic universe seeks to erase temporal and spatial borders by means of the simultaneity afforded by technology. The use of screens will enable the simultaneous participation in different shows and events in cities that are interconnected regardless of the distance that separates them. Spectators will thus feel part of a rich cultural network that aims to integrate the different simultaneous venues through culture. The kilometres of the BIENALSUR CARTOGRAPHY are measured from the MUNTREF, located in the former Hotel de Inmigrantes in the harbour of Buenos Aires, Argentina, and go as far as Tokyo, Japan.
