Asia Forum at 60th Venice Biennale 2024

Asia Forum and Asymmetry Art Foundation will gather a one-day assembly titled A World of Many Worlds at the historic Fondazione Querini Stampalia, taking place on 20 April 2024, the first public day during opening week. Through a programme of presentations, panel conversations, screenings, and performances, A World of Many Worlds seeks to bring together artists, curators, thinkers, and other practitioners to expound on the pluriversal possibilities of the global Asias.

A World of Many Worlds responds to the Biennale’s theme Foreigners Everywhere, to consider what it means to acknowledge the existence of multiple worlds rather than just multiple subjects, and what it might mean to put them in relation. The discursive panels will be accompanied by a selected screening programme, followed by artist interventions and performances, and a gathering in the Fondazione’s beautiful gardens.

A World of Many Worlds is co-organised by Annie Jael Kwan, Michèle Ruo Yi Landolt, Hammad Nasar, John Tain, Ming Tiampo, and Nick Yu.

The project contributes to social and global discourse by encouraging dialogue between Asian cultures and other disciplines. It also shares knowledge and expertise from, about or inspired by cultures across Asia.
