La Bienal 2013, El Museo’s 7th biennial exhibition, features work by 37 emerging Latino and Latin American artists, from newly-minted to mid-career, who live and work in New York City metropolitan area. This installation of La Bienal is curated by El Museo Curator Rocío Aranda-Alvarado and Raúl Zamudio, an independent New York-based curator.
This year, La Bienal features Brazil as the special guest country. Our biennial guest country presents an opportunity for El Museo to remain in conversation with similar urban artistic landscapes throughout Latin American and the Caribbean, and expose our audiences to emerging artists in other locales.

Presencia, the most recent exhibition of work from El Museo’s permanent collection, focuses on ideas of presence and its antithesis, absence. This theme is explored through photography, painting, prints, drawings, masks, and other objects. The exhibition investigates the visibility and invisibility of the human form through the presentation of the body in literal and conceptual ways. The featured artists play with their figures, showing bodies revealed and obscured, evidently displayed or camouflaged.
