The SUR:biennial ventures to turn the world upside down. "SUR" which means "south" in Spanish, designates both a geographical region - all of the featured artists have some relation to the cultures of Latin America - and something of an underdog stance. In this sense "SUR" suggests at least two things bubbling up from below, influences from the geographic south and the emergence of something new.
