Curated by Massimiliano Gioni, the Biennale was titled of The Encyclopedic Palace. The Brazilian Pavilion will be curated by Venezuelan Luis Pérez-Oramas who will highlight the themes and ideas that governed the the 30th Bienal de São Paulo - The imminence of the poetic (2012 .)
The artists Hélio Fervenza (Anne of Deliverance, 1963) and Odires Mlászho (Mandirituba, 1960) were invited to produce new works for the exhibition. As pointed out by Pérez-Oramas: "Both are artists who undertook a dense production, sustained by a systematic effort to formal intelligence and whose works, complex and rich, worth receiving further studied by the contemporary critics. Their works that are little known outside Brazil, will no doubt be revelations to international audiences.
