29th Bienal de São Paulo catalogue : there is always a cup of sea to sail in

This catalogue contains information about the 159 artists whose works will be exhibited throughout the Ciccillo Matarazzo Pavilion and grounds between September 25 and December 12, 2010, as well as reflections on the curatorial, educational and exhibition design projects that combine as a single body to lend shape to this 29th Bienal de São Paulo. Curators Farias and Dos Anjos describe the of the exhibition objective as "to affirm that the utopian dimension to art is contained within art itself, not outside or beyond it; to affirm the value of poetic intuition in the face of tamed thought that emancipates nothing, though it permeates political parties and even formal educational institutions"--Page 21. The title refers to a line by the poet Jorge de Lima (1895 - 1953) in his work "Invençao de Orfeu" (1952), used as a metaphor to address the main topics of the event: it is impossible to separate art from politics
