Bienal Artes Visuales del Istmo Centroamericano
(8th edition coming up in Panama in 2012)
This biennial is one of the fundamental pillars of the development of contemporary art in the region and a natural platform that has projected the artists into the international scene, as distinguished curators, critics or art historians have been invited as jurors and will also evaluate the works in situ. They have projected our art beyond the Central American border. They are added to various initiatives in the different countries such as La Espira/Espora (Whorl/Spore) in Nicaragua, Teorética in Costa Rica, and Mujeres en las Artes (Women in the Arts-MUA) in Honduras, which are ongoing forums for research, debate and teaching that contribute greatly to the formation of the artists.
Reflecting the evolving landscape of the art scene, this platform will be updated as new information becomes available. Thanks to the artists and curators who have helped to shape and enrich the project to date.
