2Creator/Collector:  Bienal Americana de Arte
Requires cookie*
 Title:  Bienal Americana de Arte records  
 Dates:  1961-1969, 1977 
 Abstract:  The Bienal Americana de Arte records document the series of art salons and biennials sponsored by Industrias Kaiser Argentina (IKA). The biennials were important events for exhibiting contemporary art in Latin America in the 1960s. Although regional in focus, they attracted significant international attention. An experimental music section in 1966 featured John Cage among several Latin American composers. The archive documents the planning, realization, and reception of the biennials, as well as two contemporary Latin American art salons.
