La Biennale di Venezia, to mark the 125th anniversary of its foundation, is presenting Le muse inquiete (The Disquieted Muses). When La Biennale di Venezia Meets History, an exhibition curated for the first time by all the Artistic Directors of La Biennale’s six Departments Cecilia Alemani (Art), Alberto Barbera (Cinema), Marie Chouinard (Dance), Ivan Fedele (Music), Antonio Latella (Theatre), Hashim Sarkis (Architecture) with the collaboration of Istituto Luce-Cinecittà and Rai Teche and other Italian and international archives
The exhibition by the Historical Archives of Contemporary Arts – ASAC, will be held in the Central Pavilion of the Giardini della Biennale from Saturday, August 29 to Tuesday, December 8, 2020.
The Disquieted Muses is the first exhibition in the Biennale’s history to be conceived at the intersection of the six disciplines that are its main fields of inquiry: the visual arts, cinema, music, theatre, architecture and dance. Drawing on a wealth of materials from all six sectors, the show will highlight the links between events and episodes in the institution’s own history and in the history of the twentieth century, testifying to the vital role that it has played even at the most critical junctures.
