Everybody Talks About the Weather” is a research exhibition conceived by curator Dieter Roelstraete and presented by Fondazione Prada in Venice, in the spaces of the historic palace of Ca’ Corner della Regina, through Nov. 26, 2023.

Everybody Talks About the Weather” explores the meanings of weather in visual art, taking weather conditions as a premise for addressing the ongoing climate emergency. More than fifty works by contemporary artists and a complementary selection of historical works trace the various ways in which climate and weather have shaped our cultural identities and how humanity has dealt with our daily exposure to weather events. The installation designed by New York-based studio 2×4 will interweave the artistic dimension of the project with a series of scientific insights developed in collaboration with the New Institute Centre For Environmental Humanities (NICHE) at Ca’ Foscari University of Venice.

The exhibition will take place on two levels of Ca’ Corner della Regina interweaving the two dimensions of research, the artistic and the scientific. On the ground floor, a large LED wall loops weather forecasts extracted from traditional and online media from around the world. In the first-floor rooms, historical artworks share the same exhibition space with recent works and new commissions, establishing an ideal continuity between past, present and future or, conversely, triggering a short circuit between opposing visions and discordant notions. The exhibition reveals the artists’ constant focus on “talking about the weather“, from allegorical paintings and en plein air paintings to recent multimedia installations and transnational activism.
