The Bienal Americana de Arte records
document the series of art salons and biennials sponsored by Industrias Kaiser Argentina
(IKA). The biennials were important events for exhibiting contemporary art in Latin America
in the 1960s. Although regional in focus, they attracted significant international
attention. An experimental music section in 1966 featured John Cage among several Latin
American composers. The archive documents the planning, realization, and reception of the
biennials, as well as two contemporary Latin American art salons.
