Confinement has brought us new forms of coexistence in which we have had to relearn to relate to each other, but also to the environment that surrounds us. Are you tired of the home office? Didn’t you ever think you’d miss that damn classroom so much? Do you feel weird every time you watch series or movies on television in which face masks or healthy distance did not exist?
Surely those and many other feelings caused by this 2020 will be reflected in various works, some of them perhaps we can see before we thought as part of the Biennial of Illustration that seeks to recognize the best of Latin American illustration, and that this time he received jobs from all Latin American countries.
The Biennial of Illustration is a Pictoline initiative that seeks to find, applaud and empower emerging talent, while reflecting on the importance of illustration and visual arts today.

In this way, more than five thousand works were received from Mexico, Colombia, Chile, Argentina, Costa Rica, Cuba and Ecuador, among other countries, which have been evaluated by a jury headed, neither more nor less than by Tara McPherson, Liniers, Yuko Shimizu, Victo Ngai and Jeremyville among others, those who have chosen the 58 finalists in the physical category and 20 more finalists in the virtual category.
And so that no one is left with the desire to see them, the Illustration Biennial will have a spectacular physical exhibition at the Chapultepec Rejas in Mexico City from November 16 to January 10, 2021, which is outdoors, although in any case, it will always be advisable to visit her with a mask and respecting all health protocols.
In addition, you can admire the murals that were created with the help of Maga Rey, winner of the revelation award, at the Samsung Experience Stores in Santa Fe and Reforma 222. Also, all the works can be seen virtually through the Biennial of Illustration page.
As if that were not enough, each of the members of the jury will offer a magisterial conference that can be seen virtually in which they will share some techniques, experiences and of course, lessons that they have had throughout their careers.
The conferences will be held on Tuesday, November 7, 14, 21, and 28, as well as December 5, starting at 4pm Central Mexico time.
