It has been said that we live in the age of the image, and this age is also that of the displaced image. The current ubiquity of images has led to their multiple transformations. These shifts have occurred in many ways: images move and transform between worlds, techniques, media, contexts, and cultures. They are appropriated and re-signified, while being recycled for new uses, sometimes being quite dissociated from the operations for which they were originally conceived.

The IV Triennial will examine the formal and conceptual displacements of the graphic image between different fields, media, backgrounds, senses, and specially, its exit to the three-dimensional space, with emphasis on installations.
