During the 2022 Venice Biennale, Art Mûr gallery will occupy the former 2019 Estonia Pavilion to present its group exhibition Terra Nova: looking at the present and the future. In partnership with the Giudecca Art District, the exhibition will run from April 22 to July 2, 2022 on the island of Giudecca in Venice.
Humans have always been in search of new frontiers, new territories. But it seems time has come to be content with the planet we occupy, and to build a better world. Where are we and where are we going? These questions are indispensable premises for us to begin the necessary changes. The selection of works at the heart of this exhibition will allow us to look at different aspects of our lives and our future. The exhibition focuses on the notion of territory, its physical and metaphysical evolution, and the social circumstances and responsibilities for the future of our planet. Terra Nova: looking at the present and the future aims to provide an environment for dialogue and reflection about tomorow. How can we think about spaces to grasp something of what’s coming? In order to connect social and territory questions, each artist offers a discovery of their own vision of the world.
Official opening on April 20, 2022: The exhibition Terra Nova: looking at the present and the future will open its doors on April 20, 2022 for the Biennale’s professional days.
