(Venice Biennale Lithuania Pavilion Golden Lion Award, Serpentine Galleries, and 2020-2021 Shanghai Biennale Curator)

in conversation with FHI Social Practice Lab Director Pedro Lasch.

With a response from Anne Barlow, museum curator and director, and PASS Journal – International Biennial Association Editorial Committee member

Lucia Pietroiusti is Curator of General Ecology at Serpentine Galleries, London; as well as the curator of Sun & Sea (Marina) – the Lithuanian Pavilion at the 58th Venice Biennale (and international tour). She will be the curator of “Power Night” at E-Werk Luckenwalde (2021) and a curator of the 2020-2021 Shanghai Biennale (with Marina Otero Verzier, You Mi and Filipa Ramos. Chief Curator: Andrés Jaque) and Helsinki Festival 2022-2023 (with James Bridle). Current projects include the recurring festival on consciousness across species, The Shape of a Circle in the Mind of a Fish (with Filipa Ramos), the publication, More-than-Human (with Andrés Jaque and Marina Otero Verzier) and the publication and research project, Microhabitable (with Fernando García-Dory, Matadero/Madrid and INLAND/Campo Adentro).

At Serpentine, Pietroiusti founded and runs General Ecology, a strategic effort to embed environmental subjects and methods throughout the Galleries’ outputs and networks, as well as Back to Earth, gathering 65+ artist campaigns for the environment. The General Ecology Network, currently in development, convenes 100+ individuals and organisations across disciplines to prototype artist-led, environmentally driven systems change and bridge the knowledge/translation gap between culture, creativity and ecology. Pietroiusti was the co-founder, and is currently co-curator and co-presenter, of the Serpentine Podcast.

20-22 The Ongoing Biennial – A Weekly Conversation Cycle with International Curators

Every Wednesday 1-2pm (EST/GMT-5)

Jan 27th and May 5th, 2021

Organized by Pedro Lasch and the FHI Social Practice Lab with support from the Franklin Humanities I World Arts Initiative at Duke University, this Conversation Cycle is part of a larger program entitled ’20-22 The Ongoing Biennial’. In person visits with some of our guests will also be presented at a later stage in collaboration with the the AAHVS Department and the Nasher Museum of Art.

Set in the context of an unprecedented pandemic, global shutdowns, and the rethinking of every aspect of exhibition making, our remote conversations will include curators and other international arts professionals. The first year of the public program will focus on short online dialogues with individual guests. Our one hour long remote events will begin with a casual interview, focusing on the particular trajectory and ideas of each guest in the series, followed by comments from a respondent and questions from the audience. Within this format, we also hope to provide an opportunity for joint reflection on these highly unusual times. Programming for the second year will be announced at a time of greater certainty.

One-time registration at this link will give you access to all of these free and public events:
