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 by the Historical Archives of Contemporary Arts – ASAC, to be held in the Central Pavilion of the Giardini della Biennale from Saturday, August 29 to Tuesday, December 8, 2020.
This is the first exhibition to be curated by all the Artistic Directors of La Biennale’s six Departments. Working together, they have used the one-of-a-kind sources of the Historical Archives of La Biennale and other Italian and international archives to retrace key moments during the 20th century when La Biennale crossed paths with history in Venice.
“The Exhibition marks our return to activity, it forges a dialogue between the six arts of La Biennale in the form of a resource center set up under the auspices of the Historical Archives. An insightful project which has become a key part of this year’s activities.”
The exhibition, conceived at the intersection of Art, Cinema, Music, Theatre, Architecture and Dance, retraces those key moments when La Biennale crossed paths with history in Venice.
