In even-numbered years this pavilion hosts the Bienal (Biennial), an exhibition that presents the works of artists from more than 60 countries. The first such event was held in 1951 in Parque Trianon and drew artists from 21 countries. After Ibirapuera Park's inauguration in 1954, the Bienal was moved to this Oscar Niemeyer–designed building that's noteworthy for its large open spaces and floors connected by circular slopes.

This is the best reason to go to Sao Paolo. I loved the enormous sprawling exhibit. Artists were given huge spaces to create their worlds, and create they did! The building is curious for an art show, but it is a spectacular building. The event is near othere museums. Don't miss it
