Today, October 3rd, the Minister for Cultural Heritage, Alberto Bonisoli, announced the three artists selected by the curator Milovan Farronato, who will represent Italy at the upcoming Venice Biennale (11 May to 24 November 2019): Enrico David (Ancona, 1966); Chiara Fumai (Rome, 1978-Bari, 2017); Liliana Moro (Milan, 1961).
“Between two generations, the works and biographies of Enrico David, Chiara Fumai and Liliana Moro, although very different”, explained the curator of the Italian Pavilion Milovan Farronato, “mark significant contemporary artistic paths that stand out for their research between past and present. Their works stand out for the inextinguishable desire to explore territories where daily life, survival, tradition and narration have a strong presence. I worked closely with these three artists over the years, on the occasion of personal and collective exhibitions in Italy and abroad, and I am happy to be able to support their practices in this large-scale exhibition, which will include new works but also works of the past”.
