This Is Not a Void is an exhibition without objects, it presents an empty gallery space filled with immaterial art works. Bringing together a large number of pieces by more than 30 international artists, the exhibition focuses on thematizing the notion of the void when creating a physically empty space "full" of artworks that are dematerialized, immaterial, or ephemeral, and therefore imperceptible.
The exhibition is in large part a response to the 28th Bienal de Sao Paulo, which opens the same week. In the second-floor galleries of the Bienal pavilion, where the core of the biennial is usually located, there is nothing but an empty gallery space.
