It´s a mecca of modern art in Brazil. Quite often they offer nice expositions and events of Art. It´s considered one of the most relevant biennial in the globe.

“One of the most beautiful modernist buildings worldwide!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2012

This building houses the Biennial every couple of years (from September to December). If you are in town or visiting the Park, do swing by since the Biennial is free, open to the public and presents the most interesting and cutting edge contemporary art from around the world. The ramp is spectacular, and the view from the 2nd or 3rd floor to the Park is breath taking.

“Depends on the content”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 13, 2012

It is a great building by Oscar Niemeyer, but the joy depends on what is being exposed at Bienal building.
