Paralela 2008: From Near and Far


In stark contrast to this year's much-criticized São Paulo Biennial, the concurrently running, off-circuit Paralela '08 "From Near and Far" is a heady alternative for those looking for a more rigorous program than what's being offered inside the Oscar Neimeyer building.

With work on display from 61 Brazilian artists from the best galleries in São Paulo—such as ArturBarrio_SituacaoT-T.jpg


Paralela, hosted in the breathtaking space of the Liceu de Artes e Oficios, has been running in line with the São Paulo Biennial since 2002 and is turning out to be a formidable competitor. You can watch a short episode from the Metropolis television show of a little bit of what's on display here.
