Last April we reported on our partnership and participation with Gerri Ondrizek, Reed College and the European Cultural Center for the ‘Transitions and Transformations: The Constant Flux of Our Personal Structures’ exhibition at the Palazzo Bembo in Venice, Italy, as a collateral event of the 2023 Venice Bienalle (April 23 – November 27). The exhibit was presented in two parts and three sections—Biological, Environmental and Socio-Political Structures. Among the fifteen artists in the show, EAS was pleased to feature the work of three EAS network artists--Jayeti Bhattacharya and Vikrant Kano from India and Sai Blank from Myanmar--in the 'Part 1, Socio-Political Structures' section of the exhibition that was up through July 25.
This Fall (September 22), a symposium focusing on the exhibition themes was held online and in Venice. The event included panel presentations and discussions facilitated by art historian, Jane Chin Davidson. The EAS panel discussants included Ann Wettrich, Director of Programs and Administration, along with artists Jayeti Bhattacharya and Sai Blank. Today, we are pleased to offer a deeper dive into this insightful experience, with links to the full recording of the symposium along with shorter video clips.
