MAGMATISM PIC-NIC /
MAY 9-10TH / VENICE
At the former Chiesa dei Santi Cosma e Damiano occupied by Pavilion 02 in GAD – Giudecca Art District Magmatism team will activate the courtyard space with video screenings, performances presentations and sheer human engagement. It will be unique occasion to get involved with Magmatism Movement – a project that we had been developing this year that focuses on unknown and inexplicable rythms of culture masses under the metaphor of the processes of magma flow in Earth crust. Magmatism is a living, moving and eruptive thing that you have yet to witness!
With Pic-Nic at Pavilion 02 Magmatism wants to introduce new curatorial perspective on how art functions in current time. We strive to bring up contexts that in relation to global, white, western, heteronormative art world can be perceived borderline or completely outside.
For Magmatism Pic-Nic we have selected works and artists that represent this certain kind of nonconformity, their sense of belonging is somewhat skewed, normal yet liminal.
On the evening of the 9th of May we will host Sunset Video – a consecutive presentation of various video works that reflect on sense of singular sense of not belonging. Sunset Video will be accompanied by various leisure activities, Pavilion 02 tour and networking session.
On the morning of 10th of May Performative Breakfast will be held at the Pavilion 02 courtyard. Invited atists will perform, talk, make statements and once again activate the space of the courtyard with the body and mind.
Programme curated by: Jacek Sosnowski and Gabriel Mestre Arrioja
