New doors for the future
Cecilia Alemani focuses her “imaginary journey through metamorphoses of the body and definitions of humanity” on a series of questions about the “doubts that pervade the sciences, arts, and myths of our time”.
The title of the 17th International Architecture Exhibition, curated by Hashim Sarkis, is also a question: “How will we live together?”.
These two choices are the product of the current times, which lack all certainty and burden humanity with immense responsibilities.
In 2020, Cecilia Alemani coordinated the work of the directors of all the departments of La Biennale (Art, Architecture, Cinema, Dance, Music, Theatre) in organizing the exhibition Le muse inquiete (The Disquieted Muses). When La Biennale di Venezia Meets History.
The restiveness and assumption of responsibility inherent in the artistic act were the inspiration for the exhibition, which told much of the story of La Biennale. Today the starting point for the next Biennale Arte seems to be the reinvention of new and more sustainable relations between individuals and the universe we live in.
What better way could there be for Cecilia Alemani, than through these two experiences, to open new doors for the future Biennales?
