Muse inquiete

The Disquieted Muses. When La Biennale Meets History
An exhibition at the Central Pavilion of the Giardini

On the 125th anniversary of its foundation, the Venice Biennale presents the exhibition “Le muse inquiete. La Biennale di fronte alla storia” (The Disquieted Muses. When La Biennale Meets History) to be held at the Central Pavilion of the Giardini della Biennale from Saturday 29th August until Tuesday 8th December 2020, organized by the Historical Archives of the Biennale – ASAC.

The exhibition is curated for the first time by all the directors of the six artistic sectors, Cecilia Alemani (Art), Alberto Barbera (Cinema), Marie Chouinard (Dance), Ivan Fedele (Music), Antonio Latella (Theatre), Hashim Sarkis (Architecture), who have worked together to retrace, through the unique sources of the Biennale Archives and other national and international archives, those moments when La Biennale and the history of the 20th century intertwined in Venice.

The exhibition is organized in the halls of the Central Pavilion in an itinerary that crosses the six disciplines: from the Fascist years (1928-1945) to the Cold War and the new world orders (1948-1964), from 1968 to the biennials of Carlo Ripa di Meana (1974-78), from Postmodernism to the first Architecture Biennale until the 1990s and the beginning of globalization.
