International Open call for Artists and Curators – BIENALSUR 5th Edition

Deadline Date: April 08, 2024

Donor Name: Universidad Nacional de Tres de Febrero (UNTREF)

Grant Size: Not Available

The General and Artistic Direction of BIENALSUR, organized by the Universidad Nacional de Tres de Febrero (UNTREF), a public university in Argentina, invites artists and curators of any nationality to submit artistic and/or curatorial projects.

The projects selected in this call will be part of the fifth edition to be held in 2025 in various venues, museums, cultural centres, universities and non-traditional spaces in large cities and small towns in different countries.

BIENALSUR upholds the right to culture and one of its aims is to contribute to the creation of cultural citizenship from the south of the world. Its particular format and its collaborative and networking approach encourages the arts of each region to be present from their own singularities and relative positions. It fosters the development of critical thinking with autonomy with respect to canonical narratives and alternative practices within the world of art and culture in its modes of production, exhibition, circulation and consumption.


  • The application is free of charge and is open to 4 (four) categories: individual artist, group artist, individual curator and group curator. For each of these categories only one submission is allowed.
  • Artists, curators and curators from all over the world, irrespective of their nationality, are welcome to apply.
  • The application can be submitted online, through a platform available in Spanish and English. Proposals that align with contemporary theories of art and culture, seeking to rethink, problematize, or offer alternative perspectives and approaches to the multiplicity of vital experiences of the time, are welcomed.
  • Based on the projects received, the International Curatorial Council of BIENALSUR will identify and evaluate the Curatorial Axes for the 2025 edition. This will enable the consolidation of a cartography that is closely related to the concerns and experiences of artists, curators and curators worldwide. This selection will give rise to the projects for the fifth edition of BIENALSUR 2025, 10 years after its creation.
