Event Details

To mark the closing of the Diaspora Pavilion, seven of the exhibiting artists are returning to Venice to activate the site through a two-day programme of performances, tours, screenings and a roundtable discussion on the 25th and 26th of November. The programme expands the narratives posed by the works in the exhibition and attempts to reflect on the context in which it was conceived and the conditions in which it functions.

During the closing programme Arts Territory will also present a series of live events curated by Katarzyna Sobucka in connection to an ongoing project entitled The Illusion of Return.

Programme participants: Barby Asante | Libita Clayton | Kimathi Donkor | Michael Forbes | susan pui san lok | Griet Menschaert | Katarzyna Perlak | Joanna Rajkowska | Justyna Scheuring | Erika Tan | Abbas Zahedi
