El Museo del Barrio welcomes visitors of all backgrounds to discover the artistic and cultural landscape of the Caribbean and Latin America. The richness of Latino cultures is represented in El Museo’s wide-ranging collections and exhibitions, complemented by performing arts events and cultural celebrations.
LA BIENAL 2013, El Museo's 7th biennial exhibition, features work by 37 artists, from newly-minted to mid-career, who live and work in New York City metropolitan area. The exhibition explores, offers, and supports experimental and experiential aspects of contemporary art, and offers an opportunity for artists and viewers to connect through the art object and ideas behind it.
Designed to provide a platform for artists who have never shown at El Museo, LA BIENAL is interested in the conditions under which works of art are made and how they are received by the public.
