The Fundação Bienal de São Paulo will be opening its 26th Biennial on September 25, 2004. With the theme of Território Livre [in English, "Image Smugglers in a Free Territory], the exhibition will be held in 25,000 square meters of exhibition space on the three floors of the Ciccillo Matarazzo Pavilion, home of the Fundação Bienal, portão 3, Parque do Ibirapuera, São Paulo, Brazil. This edition of the biennial – which is considered to be one of the three most important events of its kind in the world – features 140 artists from 60 different countries. The chief curator is Alfons Hug, who was in charge of the previous edition, in 2002. The theme proposed derives from the idea of the no-man's land, not only geographically, politically and socially speaking, but mainly as an aesthetic field, where art defies the boundaries of reality. The 26th Bienal de São Paulo is divided into 3 main segments: "National Representations", Special Project Rooms and "Invited Artists". The "National Representations" segment presents the works of artists from 55 countries (one artist per country). The Bienal has encouraged the participation of a large number of African and Asian countries, which usually get little exposure in contemporary art shows. This year's edition also provides a special exhibition on African Photography, with a selection of 8 artists.
