Located in the central atrium of the Bienal Pavilion, the installation deposition, by Daniel de Paula, Marissa Lee Benedict and David Rueter, re-signifies an old “trading pit” from the Chicago Board of Trade that can be freely occupied by visitors and has a wide activation program.
This Saturday, 20 November, known in Brazil as Black Consciousness Day, BNegão occupies the installation deposition with a special show!
The rapper prepared a unique show for the 34th Bienal de São Paulo. BNegão will present for the first time some tracks that will be on his first solo album – Metamorfoses, Riddims e Afins, to be released in March 2022) – and the show also features a selection of songs that were part of his career, as well as tributes/versions of masters of Brazilian Black Music, such as Dorival Caymmi, Jorge Ben and Nelson Cavaquinho.
MC of the legendary band Planet Hemp (alongside Marcelo D2), BNegão was the main vocalist of the group Bnegão & Seletores de Frequência between 2003 and 2020. Participating in both projects, the artist circulated through some of the main stages in Brazil and the world. Nowadays, BNegão is working on new sounds for his solo career and also the release of Planet Hemp’s new album, as well as a collection in honor of the closure of the activities of Bnegão & Seletores de Frequência.
