NEW YORK, NY.- El Museo del Barrio presents LA BIENAL 2013: Here Is Where We Jump, an exhibition featuring works by 37 newly-minted to mid-career artists who live and work in the New York City metropolitan area. In its seventh edition, LA BIENAL 2013 is on-view from June 12, 2013 – January 4, 2014. As part of the new exhibition, El Museo is launching RADIANCE: After Hours at El Museo, lively evenings of music, gallery talks, special performances and programs, to be held every Wednesday between June 19, 2013 and August 28, 2013 from 6pm-9pm.

The artists and works in LA BIENAL 2013 are as diverse in their backgrounds as they are in their creative processes. From Chilean artist Julia San Martin, whose experimental expressionistic work reflects on the violence and persecution experienced by civilians living under a dictatorship, to Puerto Rican artist and Bronx native Manny Vega’s exploration and celebration of collective memory and the shared histories of the African diaspora in the Americas. Likewise, the methods and processes of the artists range from recycling materials to produce traditional objects, as is the case in Sean Paul Gallegos’s exploration of ethnography, to Cuban artist Pavel Acosta’s exploration of art and scarcity through “Wallscape,” an intervention into El Museo’s gallery walls using stolen paint. La Bienal 2013 showcases paintings, drawings, video, sculptures, installations, and performances.

LA BIENAL 2013 was designed to provide a platform for artists who have never shown at El Museo. Since its first edition in 1999, LA BIENAL 2013 – formerly known as The (S) Files – has been a significant means for creating ties between El Museo and artists, while building networks and opportunities for a wide variety of talent. La Bienal distinguished alumni include Firelei Baez, Allora & Calzadilla, Margarita Cabrera, Alejandro Cesarco, Richard Garett, Pablo Helguera, Tamara Kostianovsky, Carlos Motta, and Iván Navarro.

As a collective exhibition, LA BIENAL 2013: Here Is Where We Jump is a research project oriented towards a better understanding of the conditions under which artists produce, present, and think through art in our city. Every edition of El Museo’s Bienal explores and supports experimental and experiential aspects of contemporary art. In this exhibition, the artists’ methods and processes are of significance, as is the context in which they are interpreted. This installation of LA BIENAL 2013 is curated by El Museo Curator Rocío Aranda-Alvarado and Raúl Zamudio, an independent New York-based curator. Brazil is featured as the guest country for this edition of the exhibition.
