SAO PAULO.- Titled Incerteza viva [Live Uncertainty], the 32nd Bienal de São Paulo means to reflect on the current conditions of life and the strategies offered by contemporary art to harbor or inhabit uncertainty. The exhibition will be held from September 10 to December 12, 2016 at the Ciccillo Matarazzo Pavilion, featuring approximately 90 artists and collectives, 54 of which are announced below.

“Art feeds off uncertainty, chance, improvisation, speculation and, at the same time, it attempts to count the uncountable and measure the immeasurable. It makes room for error, for doubt and risk - even for ghosts and the most profound misgivings within all of us, but without evading or manipulating them,” says curator Jochen Volz. Co-curators Gabi Ngcobo (South Africa), Júlia Rebouças (Brazil), Lars Bang Larsen (Denmark) and Sofía Olascoaga (Mexico) round out the curatorial team.

The exhibition sets out to trace cosmological thinking, ambient and collective intel- ligence, and systemic and natural ecologies. “In order for us to objectively confront the big questions of our time, such as global warming and its impact on our habitat, the extinction of species and the loss of biological and cultural diversity, econom- ic and political instability, injustice in the distribution of the earth's natural resources and global migration, among others, perhaps it's necessary to detach uncertainty from fear.” Volz proceeds.

Seeking to actively participate in the continuous and collective construction of the Ibirapuera Park as a public space, the exhibition sees itself as an extension of the garden inside the pavilion. Conversely, numerous artistic projects will be commissioned for the park. The firm Álvaro Razuk Arquitetura has been invited to develop the exhibit's architectural project and exhibition displays.

On this occasion, we are announcing a preliminary list of artists, including some historic names who have special significance in the present, representing a conceptual and methodological core for the exhibition as a whole and for the proposed themes. Still, most of the artists were born from the 1970s on, an intentionally young selection. This initial list stands out for including a vast diversity of languages and, at the same time, some of the most articulate voices in relation to the main themes of the 32nd Bienal de São Paulo. So far 54 artists have been confirmed but the curatorial research goes on, aiming for a Bienal with approximately 90 artists.
