Poetics becomes even more Imminent: São Paulo announces the artist list

Taking a cue from the Guggenheim, this week the international art world turns its attention South.

Mexico’s largest fair, Zona Maco kicks off today with its emphasis on Latin and South America, with Coleccion Jumex director Patrick Charpenel has selected 22 artists from these regions for the Zona Maco Sur section.

Meanwhile, the São Paulo Bienal announced the roster of artists for its 30th edition, which will open September 7, 2012, and run through December 9. Titled “The Imminence of Poetics,” the main exhibition will be curated by MoMA’s curator of Latin American Art, Luis Pérez-Orama. While the emphasis is heavily regional, there were surprise inclusions of younger artists like Viola Yesiltac and Sergei Tcherepin and Ei Arakawa, alongside icons like Tehching Tsieh, Bas Jan Ader, Robert Smithson and Allen Kaprow.
