A series of dynamic performances during the final weekend of the 58th Venice Biennale of Art, commissioned by Arts Council England and co-produced by Delfina Foundation and the Venice Biennale as part of Meetings on Art.

Following on from the programme of performances that took place during the opening week of the 58th Venice Biennale in May, a second programme of short performance-lectures and audio-visual performances will be presented during the final weekend of the 2019 Biennale from 22-24 November.

The programme, devised by Ralph Rugoff, Artistic Director of the 58th Venice Biennale of Art, and Aaron Cezar, Director of Delfina Foundation, will complement the week of performances that took place during the opening, activating the ‘in between’ spaces of the biennale’s gardens and galleries in short and durational episode, testing aesthetic, behavioural and social conventions. This second part of the programme will take place across a number of indoor locations around the Arsenale site, offering the chance to reflect on and interrogate concerns highly pertinent to our times.

Schedule

Full schedule of performance and details about the works being presented will be released soon.
