The building is a masterpiece itself designed by a team led by architects Oscar Niemeyer and Hélio Uchôa. Wear comfortable shoes since the size of the space means you’ll do a lot of walking. Initiated in 1951, The Bienal de São Paulo is the second oldest art biennial in the world after the Venice Biennial. The biennial serves to bring Brazilian art closer to an international audience, and vice-versa.

  • Horrible. A lot of "works" scattered without objectivity, bedding, explanation or usefulness. Where a lot of supermarket pot with cabbage and parsley is art?? Not only is worse for free entry.

  • Super recommend visiting the Biennale, has several floors with many exhibitions in different categories (videos, paintings, interactive, etc) ... visited the "uncertainty alive" ... missed time going back for sure!

  • The place itself is amazing! I visited during the Biennale of arts. It's pretty big, that is, take a part of your day to walk around here. Stay inside the Ibirapuera Park next to MAM.
