The title of the 9th Bienal do Mercosul | Porto Alegre, Weather Permitting in English, Se o clima for favorável in Portuguese, and Si el tiempo lo permite in Spanish, was proposed as a motto to suggest that different climates—atmospheric, emotional, and political—are at the core of the project. As much as weather can be a public concern (ecological and economical), it is also material substance (psychological and physical). Thus, such a common phrase is an invitation to ponder when and how, by whom and why, certain artworks and ideas have or lack physical or cultural visibility at a given moment in time.
