Delfina Foundation to Feature the Second Part of the Venice Biennale’s Performance Programme

3 weeks ago

A dynamic programme of performances will take place during the closing weekend of the 58th Venice Biennale (22-24 November 2019). Commissioned by Arts Council England and co-produced by Delfina Foundation and the Venice Biennale as part of Meetings on Art, the first part of the programme took place during the biennale opening days in May and will soon enliven the final act of the Venice International Art Exhibition.

The programme, curated by Ralph Rugoff, Artistic Director of the 58th Venice Biennale of Art, and Aaron Cezar, Director of Delfina Foundation will include short performance-lectures and audio-visual performances.

The performances will take place across a number of indoor locations around the Arsenale site. Stay tuned to discover the full schedule of events, to be soon released on Delfina Foundation’s website.

The line-up of participant artists include Vivian Cacurri, Cooking Sections, Invernomuto, Paul Maheke and Nkisi, Vivien Sansour, and Bo Zheng and more.

During the lead up to this second installment of the programme, My Art Guides will launch a series of conversations between Aaron Cezar and the participating artists, providing you with special insight on what is to come!
