Alberta Whittle: deep dive (pause) uncoiling memory
Organizing Institution: Scotland + Venice
Deep dive (pause) uncoiling memory
is an installation of new work by award-winning artist Alberta Whittle. Spanning two rooms in a former boatyard, Alberta’s work is an environment containing works in tapestry, film, and sculpture connected through a shared vocabulary of motifs and ideas. Through her rich symbolism, Alberta encourages us to slow down in order that we may collectively consider the historic legacies and contemporary expressions of racism, colonialism, and migration and begin to think outside of these damaging frameworks.

Angela Su: Arise, Hong Kong in Venice
Organizing Institutions: M+, West Kowloon Cultural District Authority and Hong Kong Arts Development Council
In Arise, Angela Su conveys a speculative narrative through interlocking fictional perspectives. The act of levitation serves as an organising metaphor that reappears throughout Su’s drawings, moving images, embroideries, and installations. The artist assumes the guise of fictional alter ego to explore myriad cultural and political valences of rising in the air. The centrepiece of the exhibition is a new video work, The Magnificent Levitation Act of Lauren O. This pseudo-documentary tells the story of Lauren O, a fictional character who believes she can levitate, and her involvement with Laden Raven, an activist group catalysed by the US antiwar movement of the 1960s. Su’s video comprises found footage and clips of a new performance by the artist. Weaving together fact and fiction, the work suggests an alternative space for action and disruption. Traces of Lauren O and Laden Raven are embedded in the constellation of artwork in the exhibition, which also invites the audience to take a journey in Su’s fictional world.

Angels Listening
Organizing Institution: Centro Studi e Documentazione della Cultura Armena
Seven large-scale angels, cast in bronze with mouths “taped” shut, encircle a gilded confessional in Rachel Lee Hovnanian’s immersive installation Angels Listening. This interactive exhibition invites viewers to relinquish their innermost thoughts, whether repressed due to fear of judgement or sheer inability, onto pieces of ribbon. Once discarded on-site, the viewer’s voice joins a chorus of shed confessions – demonstrating the liberation associated with catharsis and the sanctity of meditative environments in moments of shared isolation. Rachel Lee Hovnanian is a Miami-based artist whose multidisciplinary practice explores the complexities of modern feminism and the psychological effects of technology.

Bosco Sodi a Palazzo Vendramin Grimani. What Goes Around Comes Around
Organizing Institution: Fondazione dell’Albero d’Oro
Bosco Sodi, renowned for his use of raw natural materials in large-scale sculptures and paintings, has been chosen by the Fondazione dell’Albero d’Oro for an artist residency at Palazzo Vendramin Grimani. The essential simplicity of the material and the intense pigments, sought by Sodi from all over the world, form the basis of his creative process, which the artist described as a “controlled chaos” that produces “something completely unrepeatable”. The works will be created by the artist in the androne or ground-floor hall of the palazzo overlooking the Grand Canal and forms the core of the exhibition curated by Daniela Ferretti and Dakin Hart.

Catalonia in Venice_Llim
Organizing Institution: Institut Ramon Llull
Llim (silt)
adheres to the canals and glass tubes, connecting them, and progressively assimilates the layers that make up Venice. That a city surrounded by water became the glass-making centre of the Western world is due to viscosity: the ability of glass and water to mutate between states of matter facilitates collaboration and coexistence. Water has fertile power because it becomes silt when in contact with the earth. From the black mud of the Nile comes the Arabic word khemia, alchemy, which found a source of inspiration in glass. Llim does not aspire to the obtaining of gold nor of the quintessence: it moves Venice’s foundation with the same calm that it metabolises and returns the materials to their origin.

Chun Kwang Young: Times Reimagined
Organizing Institution: Boghossian Foundation
Times Reimagined
is an aesthetic laboratory by Chun Kwang Young, an artist who has been working for about thirty years with the theme of the interconnectedness between living beings and the socioecological values of their relationships. His hanji (Korean mulberry paper) oriented reliefs, sculptures, installations, and, as a highlight, the site-specific architectural structure made in dialogue with architect Stefano Boeri are all being staged during the Exhibition. The paper, which once lived as books, was reborn as symbolic creatures, reimagining the knowledge, information, and values that have judged and determined our times. Through these, audiences are encouraged to reconsider existing nonecological practice and seek new exits.

Claire Tabouret: I am spacious, singing flesh
Organizing Institution: FABA Fundazión Almine Y Bernard Ruiz-Picasso para el Arte
Claire Tabouret: I am spacious
, singing flesh presents a new critical reading of key dimensions of the artist’s work in a remarkable survey exhibition curated by Kathryn Weir that explores multiple transformations: of self, other, collective identities, struggle, release, and refuge. A powerful and unexpected dialogue is also created with several devotional objects drawn from the Italian context, invoking an ambivalent threshold in Tabouret’s practice, a portal into multiple temporalities and subjectivities through which to consider alternative relationships amongst human beings, and between human beings and their environment, in communication with the supernatural in the face of ecological and social crises.

Eugen Raportoru: The Abduction from the Seraglio 
Roma Women: Performative Strategies of Resistance
Organizing Institution: ERIAC European Roma Institute for Arts and Culture
A multifaceted and kaleidoscopic time capsule, an installation series of sitespecific items that populate the Roma domestic space. The series is grounded in an understanding of the significance of the narratives that such objects embody, as well as their capacity to inform and reflect Roma culture, Roma lives, and the distribution of Roma knowledge. The story of the increasing presence of oriental carpets in Eastern European households is retraced, inviting meditation on the specific timespace configuration of notions of identity and history, but also trauma, hope, the body, and affect. A series of interventions further reflects on the double minority position of Roma women, creating a resonant chamber allowing us to listen to and learn from their voices.

I, White Kangaroo
Organizing Institution: Starak Family Foundation
Ewa Kuryluk’s exhibition is a meeting with the artist and the intellectual, as well as a journey in the footsteps of places important to her: Corinth, “Little Italy” in postwar Warsaw, “Little Venice” in London, and New York. The erudite and postmodern prose and essayism of the art historian, however, gives way here to a sensitive daughter, sister, and lover whose story floats in ephemeral and personal installations made of time, air, and fabric. Ewa Kuryluk, a Polish artist, is known worldwide thanks to over fifty solo shows in Europe, the USA, South America, Canada, and Japan. She is a pioneer of ephemeral textile installation, painter, photographer, art historian, novelist, and poet. Her work can be found in public and private collections in Europe and the USA.

From Palestine With Art
Organizing Institution: Palestine Museum US
The exhibition, promoted by the Palestine Museum US, shows the richness of contemporary art produced in Palestine and the diaspora. Contextualizing the language of modernism, artists interpret codes and symbols as artist to show the beauty of Palestine’s land and people. The olive tree, beloved by the people, stands at the centre of the exhibition atop a historic map of Palestine, surrounded by embroidered dresses and paintings. From Palestine With Art creates a powerful statement matching Palestinians’ determination to embrace land and heritage.

Ha Chong-Hyun
Organizing Institution: Kukje Art and Culture Foundation
Ha Chong-Hyun is best known as a Dansaekhwa artist, but that designation applies only to one aspect of a varied practice that has been devoted to the exploration of materials and their properties for more than fifty years. Following the Korean war, Ha produced abstract and three-dimensional works using found objects that reflected the lasting traumas of war. In 1974 he began his acclaimed Conjunction series which employs bae-ap-bub, the artist’s innovative method of pushing oil paint through the back of the canvas weave to the front. This approach personifies Ha’s commitment to challenging the status quo and developing a unique artistic vocabulary. This retrospective is intended to present the full breadth of his materials, methods, and creative experimentation, as well as to highlight his pioneering role in “contemporary” Korean art.

Heinz Mack - Vibration of Light
Organizing Institution: Biblioteca Nazionale Marciana
In an extensive solo show the ZERO founder and kinetic artist Heinz Mack, who represented Germany at the 35th International Art Exhibition in 1970, presents an impressive cross-section of his work in one of Venice’s most iconic venues. In the form of an imposing spatial installation, Mack’s monumental paintings and light steles meet there with masterpieces by Titian, Tintoretto, and Veronese. Through the light-mirroring steles, the atmospheric venue with its Renaissance paintings is taken up and reflected. Light, which plays the central role in Mack’s oeuvre and in this exhibition, also determines his contemplative colour field paintings that transcend the historic space into a temporary place of meditation.

Impossible Dreams
Organizing Institution: Taipei Fine Arts Museum of Taiwan
The archive exhibition and events are meant to be viewed as interacting platforms, speaking to each other and prompted by each other’s materials. They are not separate curatorial initiatives but assemblies that address memory (archive) and presence (event), both sustaining a faith in the future. The archive becomes an aesthetic event and the event becomes a deliberative archive. The event is a lively seminar of performative gestures and the archive comprises enigmatic objects. Impossible Dreams acknowledges the constraints of the prevailing crisis and at the same time works towards the realisation of a possibility. Impossible means “not-yet possible”, a description of a condition and a hope for better things, persons, and worlds to come. Just like dreams arising from trauma and bodies and spirits migrating across different realms, the project is a work of memory and conversation.

Katharina Grosse

Organizing Institution: Fondation Louis Vuitton
In a black setting, Apollo, Apollo features a compositive image of Katharina Grosse’s hands printed on a metallic mesh fabric, depicting a moment where the boundaries between the artist’s body and the coloured material blur in the act of creating. With its metallic fluidity and hued intensity, which takes on special resonance in the Venetian context, this work blends the transparent with the opaque, letting light filter through, creating a gateway to a dreamlike world in which visitors question the boundaries between reality and imagination.

Kehinde Wiley: An Archaeology of Silence
Organizing Institution: Musée d'Orsay
Kehinde Wiley: An Archaeology of Silence
is a reflection on the brutalities of American and global colonial pasts. The exhibition includes a collection of new monumental paintings and sculptures that meditate on the deaths of Black men all over the world and how global media has exposed these atrocities that were once silenced. “That is the archaeology I am unearthing”, Wiley states. “The spectre of police violence and state control over the bodies of young Black and Brown people all over the world”. The new portraits tell a story of survival and resilience, standing as monuments to endurance and perseverance in the face of savagery.

Lita Albuquerque: Liquid Light
Organizing Institution: bardoLA
The 25th-century female astronaut of Lita Albuquerque’s film commutes an otherworldly knowledge across the planes of the celestial and terrestrial. Like traders arriving in the Venice of old, or tourists disembarking today, her encounter with Earth is one of wonder and apprehension – wonder at what has survived the corruption of time and apprehension towards its continued survival. An amalgam of iconography, personal history, and emotional landscapes that embody the artist’s mythology, Liquid Light is exhibited as a tryptic video installation, in concert with installation components sourced and created locally, in collaboration with Venetian artisans.

Louise Nevelson. Persistence
Organizing Institution: The Louise Nevelson Foundation
Organized to mark the 60th anniversary of Louise Nevelson’s presentation for the American Pavilion of the 31st Venice Biennale in 1962, this exhibition focuses on the genre that would prove to be Nevelson’s most definitive contribution to twentieth-century art: assemblage. Curated by Julia Bryan-Wilson, the exhibition brings together more than sixty works spanning thirty years of production, underscoring Nevelson’s extraordinarily inventive combining of materials, including well-known monumental black gridded walls and smaller, lesser-known collages that feature a range of colors and were made with everyday stuff like newsprint, flattened bits of metal, cardboard, foil, sandpaper, and fabric. Installed non-chronologically, these works demonstrate Nevelson’s remarkable persistence: her brave commitment both to her steadfast aesthetic and to an ethics of reuse, while affirming the ongoing relevance of her work for contemporary audiences.

Lucio Fontana / Antony Gormley
Organizing Institution: Associazione Arte Continua
Lucio Fontana / Antony Gormley
is an exhibition built on a concise, selective conversation between artworks that look at the implications of light, space, and absence. A selection of drawings realised by Lucio Fontana between 1946 and 1968 and a series of works on paper covering many aspects of Antony Gormley’s research, are integrated with sculptures by each of these artists. Both in their two- and three-dimensional capacities, the work of the artists “inhabits” space and viewers’ attention shifts from the object in space to the space itself. Each work carries with it the trace of the reality of the moment in which the gesture, be it sculptural or graphic, releases the energetic tension contained in its very execution. The sign therefore also becomes a recording of time.

Pera + Flora + Fauna
The Story of Indigenousness and the Ownership of History
Organizing Institution: PORT People of Remarkable Talents
The discourse about indigenousness and nature is largely affected by mainstream cultural attitudes of industrialised nations, the very nations that are contributing to the existing environmental problem. This leads to questions such as, can aesthetic thinking lead to conservation and restoration of nature or indigenousness? Can indigenous populations across the globe challenge the mainstream documented (art) history written by the nonindigenous? Can indigenous populations achieve the liberty to collectively claim “their own history and narratives”, antagonising the dominant discourse? Pera + Flora + Fauna intends to interrogate the interrelations between indigenousness, dominant culture, and nature.

Road of Faith
Organizing Institution: Fondazione EMGdotART
The Road of Faith shows an awakening process by humanity following its own intuition to fight against the chaos of its mind and godhood. The exhibition consists of three parts: Ocean bloom, Ode to the Nymph of the Luo River, and With the immutability of the absolute. The literary work from Chinese classical Ci Fu, Ode to the Nymph of the Luo River is presented with colour ink and VR technology. In this transmission from two to three dimensions, using original music containing phonemes of Chinese opera and Western opera as a guide, the audience can see the consistent confrontation and struggle of human beings and their own greediness in the cycle of reincarnation.

Rony Plesl: Trees Grow from the Sky
Organizing Institution: House of Art Ceske Budejovice
The exhibition project by Czech artist Rony Plesl addresses the questions of the essence of human existence and the definition of humanity. It also touches on the relation of humanity and nature, providing its immediate reflection on multiple layers of meaning. The narrative of the overall concept and site-specific installation of the unique glass artworks revolves around a journey, around a seeking of our path in the world of today. The realisation of the Venice project is a world premiere of the unique technology of glass casting in a global context, allowing the creation of a glass sculpture without any limitations.

Stanley Whitney: the Italian Paintings
Organizing Institution: Buffalo AKG Art Museum
Virtuosic abstract painter Stanley Whitney, born in Philadelphia in 1946, has been exploring the formal possibilities of colour within ever shifting grids of multihued blocks and all-over gestural fields since the mid-1970s. A formative period spent living in Italy in the early 1990s, where Whitney was absorbed by the country’s art and architecture, forever transformed the composition of his paintings. This exhibition, cocurated by Cathleen Chaffee and Vincenzo de Bellis, is the first to gather works Whitney made in Italy from the 1990s to now, and to consider the influence of Italian art and architecture on his painting.

Francesca Leone
Take Your Time
Organizing Institution: Nomas Foundation
The artist turns her gaze to the concept of Time: it is the time of rust that oxidises on metal, scratches it, scars it; it is on this skin that the artist intervenes and delicately insinuates colour, covers the wounds. It is in this dialogue of memories that Leone builds her own visionary narrative, where a painful Nature demands a pause, as these works whisper, inviting us to stop, give time to one’s thoughts, and let dreams surface. Taking one’s time means allowing oneself the privilege of a glance, giving time to art to write one’s own story. An insurgent gesture to bring forth a new utopian thought, a new enchantment.

This is Ukraine: Defending Freedom @ Venice 2022
Organizing Institution: Victor Pinchuk Foundation
The PinchukArtCentre and Victor Pinchuk Foundation announce a new focus for its official collateral event, This is Ukraine: Defending Freedom at the Scuola Grande della Misericordia in Venice, from 23rd of April until 7th of August 2022. The exhibition, presented in partnership with the Office of the President of Ukraine and Ministry of Culture and Information Policy of Ukraine, champions the work of contemporary Ukrainian artists, whilst also contextualizing Ukrainian history and culture, with support from international artists. This replaces The Future Generation Art Prize @ Venice 2022. Across two chapters, the exhibition reasserts Ukraine’s cultural resilience that has always defined itself, even in the hardest of times, through its ability to think and create critically. Artists refuse direct war narratives and instead reflect deeply on their meaning, origin, and impact. This is Ukraine: Defending Freedom is about strength, it is about making, it is about friendship. But most of all it is about our collective freedoms—the freedom to choose, the freedom to speak, and the freedom to exist.

Tue Greenfort: Medusa Alga Laguna
Organizing Institution: ERES Foundation
The installation Medusa Alga Laguna by Danish conceptual artist Tue Greenfort focuses on diverse interspecies of life in Venice’s lagoon and brings in a human and nonhuman relationship. The sculptural manifestations – sometimes in glass as a reference to realistic mid-nineteenthcentury nature representations – transport us into the biodiverse world of Venetian waters. It reveals the fascinating complexity of marine lifeforms such as algae and jellyfish. The solo exhibition is presented by the ERES Foundation Munich, an institution that promotes dialogue between science and the fine arts. The show continues Greenfort’s project Alga in Munich (2021).

With Hands Signs Grow
Organizing Institutions: Fundación Odalys, Signum Foundation
Odalys Foundation and Signum Foundation, with the support of the Museo Nacional y Centro de Investigación de Altamira (Ministerio de Cultura y Deporte, Spain), have enabled an intervention project in the Palazzo Donà, Italian headquarters of Signum Foundation, which includes several site-specific projects conceived for different rooms of the Palazzo. A group of four young artists (Ruth Gómez, Nuria Mora, Daniel Muñoz and Sixe Paredes) participates in this initiative through a creation process that has a common characteristic: the desire to share their vision of the world through art. In such a way that these interventions now in the space of the Palazzo could be defined as a set of micronarratives from the personal territory of each artist, a territory that is public -nowbut also unchallenged, because of its historical burden. Artists who have worked on the place, relating each of them a wall/floor or room of Palazzo Donà. The artists have created a work located either on the wall or on the floor, or deployed tridimensionally, avoiding affecting the structural or historical elements of the above mentioned Palace. A multiple work in the interior lobby of the Palazzo, in the form of a large assemblage of images, with images provided by the National Museum and Altamira Research Centre, evokes the Altamira Cave (which is also visited through moving images). The sounds can be found in the solitude of the cave, next to the well of the Palazzo.

Without Women
Organizing Institution: Visual Research Support Foundation
Zinaida’s artwork Without Women is about the purity of sheep-breeders’ life in nature and the transformation of male energy. From childhood until they are too old, men in Carpathian villages leave their dwellings to go to the mountains for five months. Among the abundance of sheep and cows they process milk into butter and cheese. In this act of sublimation, which completely unveils male roles, masculinity is renewed to the point of purity. In their solitary environment, men can fully and vividly express and renew their masculine nature. Much like monks, these men live in the bosom of nature alone and without women. The artwork consists of three videos and an installation, The Milk of Life.
