How To… Curate the Venice Biennale with Cecilia Alemani

Jan 21, 2021
9:00 AM

We are delighted to kick off our 2021 “How To…” program with curator Cecilia Alemani, director of the 59th Venice Biennale (which has been postponed to summer 2022). Cecilia will be in conversation with journalist Charlotte Burns about her process in advance of the world-famous exhibition and the artists she is excited about at the moment.

Cecilia Alemani is the Donald R. Mullen, Jr. director and chief curator of High Line Art, the public art program presented by the non-profit organization Friends of the High Line in New York City, where she has commissioned and curated projects by over 200 artists since 2012. She was the artistic director of Art Basel Cities 2018 in Buenos Aires, curator of the Italian Pavilion at the 2017 Venice Biennale, and she curated Frieze Projects in New York from 2012–17.

“How To…” is a series of conversations with art world insiders moderated by Charlotte Burns and produced exclusively for AAM members. Charlotte is a journalist and podcast host who created and ran the leading show “In Other Words” for Art Agency Partners at Sotheby’s. Together we are creating unique digital content for you, starting with a range of interviews where we will gain insight into various topics directly from the experts. Enjoy full access to How To… programming when you join the museum at the Director’s Circle level membership and up!
