2 years ago

The Biennale Arte 2015 closes with a rich weekend of events that will take place from Friday 20th to Sunday 22nd November, at the Central Pavilion in the Giardini, in the Arsenale and the Giardino delle Vergini as well as with events around town.

Highlight of the weekend include:

Friday 20th, Saturday 21st and Sunday 22nd of November, the Biennale Arte will be like an ongoing live performance, animated by an intense calendar of Performances in the Arena (Central Pavilion) and in the Arsenale. The Arena will host the closing live reading of Das Kapital Oratorio and will present new performances by Theaster Gates & The Black Monks from Mississippi, and by Sonia Boyce with Exquisite Cacophony. And returning with their performances will be Olaf Nicolai, Maja Bajevic, Jason Moran, Joana Hadjithomas & Khalil  Joreige, Ivana Muller, Charles Gaines, Jeremy Deller and Matthew Abonnenc.

Friday 20th, Saturday 21st and Sunday 22nd at 2:30pm at the Nordic Pavilion, Camille Norment presents new compositions with The Camille Norment Trio, whose instrumentation parallels the artist’s investigations into the relationship between vibration and the body as perceived during the Enlightenment period and today through social and scientific discussions.

Sunday 22nd at the Greek Pavilion (Giardini) Hunting for Pharresia (or the dog) – A Performance by Steve Piccolo with Flos (Stefano Castagna & Luca Formentini) and Gak Sato will be held twice, at 3.30pm and at 4.30pm, ollowed by a talk by the artist, Maria Papadimitriou about her work ‘Agrimika.

Berna Reale presents Eccoci! on the façade of Scuola Grande di San Rocco in San Polo. The works shown are recorded performances by the artist carried out in her city of birth, Belém, in the state of Pará, Brazil. They have strong political content and aspire, in a poetic way, to confront situations of abuse of power brought about by the diverse facets of social inequality in Brazil.
