On Thursday, April 13, 2017, Alan Faena and FAENA ART celebrated the opening of the Biennale of Moving Images at Faena Bazaar and Park in Miami Beach. A co-production between Centre d’Art Contemporain Genève and FAENA ART, the Biennale of Moving Images is a one-of-a-kind hybrid event bringing together visual artists, film directors, and performers under the artistic direction of Andrea Bellini and Ximena Caminos in collaboration with Cecilia Alemani, Caroline Bourgeois, and Elvira Dyangani Ose. This marks the 15th edition of the Biennale of Moving Images and the first time that it has been presented in the United States.
