Throughout its duration, Penumbra will be accompanied by a public program titled Vanishing Points and curated by Bianca Stoppani and Paola Ugolini—respectively Editor and Curator at Fondazione In Between Art Film.

Together with curators, researchers, and thinkers, Vanishing Points involves the artists featured in the show and expand the conversations around their practice via conversations, screening programs, performances, and live readings with the participation of:

Karimah Ashadu, Cristina Baldacci, Osei Bonsu, Maria Malvina Borgherini, Lara Conte, Jacopo Crivelli Visconti, Jonathas De Andrade, Formafantasma, Francesca Gallo, Aziz Hazara, Natasha Ginwala, He Xiangyu, Hou Hanru, Beatrice Leanza, Masbedo, Marina Otero Verzier, Ippolito Pestellini Laparelli, Andrea Pinotti, Filipa Ramos, James Richards, Susan Schuppli, Emilija Škarnulytė, Federica Timeto, Ana Vaz and Kathryn Weir, among others.

According to linear perspective, a vanishing point is that real as much as virtual site on the horizon of a picture where its elements converge. It is the particular and universal point according to which the picture is fabricated and yet, despite being what the eye is invited to look at, it is also where vision paradoxically ends. Within and beyond this framework, the public program of Penumbra looks at the vanishing points which animate the works in the exhibition, acknowledging and engaging with a multiplicity of perspectives on activism, aesthetics, ecocriticism, geopolitics, philosophy, decolonization, critical spatial practice, and visual culture.

Fondazione In Between Art Film has activated a number of educational partnerships with prestigious universities of Venice that will offer formative experiences to their students. If you want to take part and are a student from the Philosophy and Cultural Heritage department at Università Ca’ Foscari or from the Visual Arts department at IUAV, please contact your department’s administration office.

To receive updates on the calendar of the program and curators-led tours, please subscribe to our newsletter or follow us on Eventbrite. The events of Vanishing Points are free and open to all.
