Первая Фуншальская международная биеннале - 2016  «Трансформация» — один из самых крупных и амбициозных проектов, которые реализуются сегодня на сцене  современного искусства Португалии. Проект разрабатывался совместными усилиями Арт-центра «Каравелла» и муниципалитетом города Фуншал. Оргкомитет биеннале  намерен сделать новый формат для португальского искусства  постоянно действующим проектом, к которому присоединяются партнеры, независимые кураторы, меценаты, разделяющие задачи биеннале и поддерживающие миссию организатора – Арт-центра «Каравелла».

 Задача Биеннале — познакомить португалоговорящие общества с мировым искусством, дать возможность  жителям и туристам острова Мадейра увидеть воочию оригинальные произведения  живописи, графики, скульптуры, фотографии  всемирно известных , а также талантливых современных художников и фотографов,   вовлечь в художественный процесс новое поколение авторов и привлечь  внимание широкой общественности к процессам в международном современном визуальном искусстве;

Основная программа Биеннале формируется кураторской группой по результатам открытого приема заявок. Тема Биеннале «Трансформация» отражает феномен переосмысления и трансформации различных систем, от политических, экономических, до культурных, в период всеобщей миграции и активизации общества. Главный критерий отбора участников Биеннале — художественный и философский уровень художника в  осознании себя  в происходящих непростых общественных процессах на трех уровнях: индивидуума, малой социальной группы и общества в целом

Программа Биеннале адресована зрителям всех возрастов и социальных групп. Экспозиции Биеннале разместятся в различных выставочных пространствах города Фуншал: в Арт-центре «Каравелла», театре имени Бальтазара Диаша, и  музеях города Фуншал. Кроме того, в рамках Биеннале планируется провести ряд параллельных выставок с участием приглашенных, в том числе зарубежных, кураторов. Биеннале будет сопровождать специальная программа перформансов, видеопоказов и концертов в лучших клубных пространствах города.

По результатам отбора проектов, которые войдут в программу Биеннале, будет издан каталог.
