Shirin Neshat and Kendell Geers on official collateral event group exhibitions at Venice Biennale

Shirin Neshat is included on a group exhibition about climate change organised by independent arts publication, The Brooklyn Rail, at the Chiesa di Santa Maria delle Penitenti in Venice. Titled The Social Environment, the show brings together 73 artists of different generations and cultural backgrounds, whose works consider the fragility of nature and human life (8 – 31 May). Also coinciding with the opening of the 58th Venice Biennale, Kendell Geers presents a site-specific project as part of Venice’s first permanent contemporary art zone, the Giudecca Art District, launched together with Yoko Ono and the British feminist October! Collective. The Giudecca Art District will host independent projects, exhibitions and cultural events under the umbrella of the 2019 curatorial programme titled Take Care of Your Garden. Cultivating a New Humanism (9 May – 24 November).
