miart – international fair of modern and contemporary art of Milan announces the complete list of speakers of the new edition of miartalks.

miartalks 2017 is conceived as an international and multidisciplinary forum to 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. Biennial culture has been the subject of intense debate, analysis and critique, yet biennials continue to proliferate internationally and exert considerable—indeed, growing and changing—influence. 

Every ten years there is a “grand tour” moment when the European spine of Venice Biennale, Documenta and Skulptur Projekte Munster coincide, and is framed by myriad others happening across the world. It is therefore appropriate to return to this subject with more than 40 artists, curators, collectors, museum directors and writers participating in thematic roundtables on art, architecture, and design, debating the scope and function of biennials and their alternatives around the world.

For the second consecutive year, 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.

Curated by:
Ben Borthwick, Artistic Director, Plymouth Arts Centre
Diana Campbell Betancourt, Artistic Director, Samdani Art Foundation; and Chief Curator, Dhaka Art Summit 2018, Bataan and Dhaka
