In a world emerging from the pandemic and at a time of inner reflection on how we nurture the bonds of society that hold us together, this year’s Biennale theme is an apt reminder that our dreams of peace, unity, and international cooperation can be possible if we dare to imagine and work together for a shared future.
The theme, imagined and curated by Cecilia Alemani, asks important questions of the art world and our responsibilities for the past, present, and future.
How is the definition of the human changing? What are our responsibilities towards the planet, other people, and other life forms? And what would life look like without us?
They are questions that find a home with much of Alberta’s deep dive (pause) uncoiling memory work and as opening week approaches, now makes for a perfect moment to reflect and dream about what tomorrow can bring.
