    Venice Biennale Eco-Art Review 2022

    Thursday, July 21

    United States: 10:00am PT, 11:00am MT, 12:00pm CT, 1:00pm ET

    EUROPE: 17:00 GMT  Australia: 4am AEDT, Thursday

    Khaled Ramadan and other speakers to be confirmed soon!

    This will be an incredible gathering of curators from this year's Venice Biennale who are engaged with artists and current discourse on how art can play a role in decolonizing nature. As well as, members who have attended the Biennale that will act as respondents. It is an opportunity to understand the changing role of art and representation of artists at the most prestigious international art event on the planet.


    Main exhibitions to be presented/discussed:

    Pera + Flora + Fauna, a official Collateral Event featuring Malaysian artists and collectives including: Azizan Paiman (MY), Kamal Sabran (MY), Kapallorek Artspace (MY), Kim Ng (MY), Projek Rabak (MY), Saiful Razman (MY) and Stefano Cagol (ITA), with the contribution and participation of the people of the Semai tribe from Kampung Ras, Sungkai, Perak. portperakvenice.com

    The Sámi Pavilion, featuring the Sámi artists Pauliina Feodoroff, Máret Ánne Sara and Anders Sunna; celebrating the art and sovereignty of the Indigenous Sámi people, whose nation extends across the Nordic countries and into the Kola Peninsula in Russia. oca.no/thesamipavilion

    Turba Tol Hol-Hol Tol in the language of the Tierra del Fuego’s indigenous Selk’nam people, means the “heart of peatlands.” The exhibition including artists Ariel Bustamante, Carla Macchiavello, Dominga Sotomayor, and Alfredo Thiermann and immerses us in a material and ancestral experience of the Patagonian peatlands through a large multisensory installation and scientific experiment. review of Turba Tol Hol-Hol Tol by Monika Fabijanska


    Questions that these exhibitions evoke:

    How are indigenousness and nature affected by mainstream cultural attitudes of industrialised nations, the very nations contributing to existing environmental problems.

    Can aesthetic thinking support the conservation and restoration of nature or indigenous rights and ways of life?

    Can indigenous populations across the globe challenge the mainstream documented (art) history written by the non-indigenous?

    Can indigenous populations achieve the liberty to collectively claim “their own history and narratives”, antagonizing the dominant discourse?
