Conceived as an international and multidisciplinary forum, miartalks 2017 will explore one of the most relevant issues in today’s global scenario: the present and the future of biennials and the challenges of recurring exhibitions. More than 40 artists, curators and museum directors will participate in thematic roundtables on art, architecture, design, the moving image and performing arts.
Speakers will include international players such as Defne Ayas, Oliver Basciano, Daniel Baumann, Sebastian Cichocki, Beatriz Colomina, Florence Derieux, Elmgreen & Dragset, Milovan Farronato, Lorenzo Fusi, Cesar Garcia, Eva González-Sancho, Jens Hoffmann, Christian Jankowski, Francesco Manacorda, Rafal Niemojewski, Angela Rui, Deyan Sudjic OBE, Kate Sutton, Sandra Terdjman, Kathryn Weir, Mark Wigley and many more.
For the second consecutive years the miartalks will be realized in collaboration with In Between Art Film, the production company founded by Beatrice Bulgari in order to support artist’s films and experimental videos.
