Cecilia Alemani the Donald R. Mullen, Jr. Director & Chief Curator of High Line Art and the Artistic Director of the 59th Venice Biennale in 2022 will visit the DIAP Studio for a conversation with Alessandro Facente as part of his class “Research based Art Practice”
Venice Biennale 2022 – the 59th International Art Exhibition titled: The Milk of Dreams. This name is borrowed from a book by Leonora Carrington, in which, as Cecilia Alemani says, “the Surrealist artist describes a magical world where life is constantly re-envisioned through the prism of the imagination, and where everyone can change, be transformed, become something and someone else. The exhibition takes us on an imaginary journey through metamorphoses of the body and definitions of humanity.”

Posted in events, lecture

Thursday, April. 28, 2022 at 1pm, Shepard Hall room 408.

Online talk and presentation by Shirley Bruno

The talk is free and open to the public. It will be held on Zoom:



Shirley Bruno:

Haitian-American filmmaker and artist Shirley Bruno’s films take their point of departure from neglected histories as well as from rumors, dreams, superstitious beliefs, memories both real and imagined. Preserving and radicalizing ancestral traditions and mythologies, she creates and reimagines modern myths that expose the impermanence between documentary and fiction, collective memory and official histories, the material and spiritual worlds.

 

Shirley’s work has screened nationally and internationally at major festivals and contemporary art exhibitions. Her films Tezen and An Excavation of Us are included in the permanent collections of Centre National des Arts Plastiques France, Leal Rios Foundation Lisbon, and Vidéographe Montréal. Exhibitions and screenings of her work have presented at Berlinale, Locarno International Film Festival, Hammer Museum, MoMA, Montréal arts interculturels, La Galerie Municipale Vitry de Jean Collet, Villa Médici Rome, Palais de Tokyo, Maison Européenne de la Photographie among others.
