Since July 17th, the contemporary art gallery ZMUD that did so much - and still does - for the Argentinean art scene, whether from the professionalization of artists or the commercialization of works, dresses its walls with the works of all those artists who once went through it to close a stage. Larisa Luz Zmud, founder and director of the gallery, described it with sincere words in an e-mail that circulated through galleries ZMUD friends, thrilling and reflecting all its readers: "I do not propose this as a closure, but as a transformation to change to something more in keeping with the real situation of Argentina and its art market. It's not an end, it's a new chapter". This is why ZMUD says goodbye in a big way through an intense two-week cycle with open talks on collecting, analysis of works, feminism, and everything you can imagine: of course, crowning him with a party on Saturday 28th at the space itself.

This year the Biennial, entitled We do not need another hero, has the participation of the South African Gabi Ngcobo as curator in chief.
The large number of Latin American artists participating in this edition of the Biennial is no small thing: compared to previous editions, the curatorial project for 2018 decided to reduce the cast of artists from one hundred and twenty artists who participated two years ago, to only forty six this year. Taking into account these figures, the prominence of Latin American and Caribbean art is a novelty, as some ten artists from these regions participate.
