Venice Biennale 2024 – Stranieri Ovunque – Foreigners Everywhere 

Kerr Houston, professor of art history, theory and criticism, Maryland Institute College of Art

Not planning a trip to Venice this year? No worries: join Kerr Houston for a virtual overview of the 2024 Biennale, the largest and most celebrated exhibition of contemporary art in the world. This year’s Biennale, on view through November, features an international exhibition curated by Adriano Pedrosa and more than a hundred additional national pavilions and collateral events. Professor Houston, who will be in Venice for the month of June, will collect highlights and offer reactions in a lecture developed specifically for the Art Seminar Group. We’ll explore the colorfully queer beadwork of Jeffrey Gibson, a stunning installation by the Mataaaho Collective, the tender paintings of MICA graduate Louis Fratino, and look at some of the more striking artistic and curatorial decisions on display. At the same time, we’ll consider a few overarching themes and some of the various controversies swirling around this year’s show. We hope you can join us! 

$15 fee for guests and subscribers (no fee for members)
