Plateau | Penumbra, Venice
At the 59th Venice Biennale, the Fondazione In Between Art Film, which supports artists and institutions experimenting with film, video, performance, and installation, presents Penumbra, a collective of works that include Karimah Ashadu's film “Plateau.”
20 April –27 November, 2022
“Plateau” explores undocumented tin mining in Nigeria’s Jos Plateau against the backdrop of British colonial rule and exploitation.
Curated by Alessandro Rabottini, Artistic Director and Leonardo Bigazzi, Penumbra will open to the public on the 20th April at the Ospedaletto and Church of Santa Maria dei Derelitti. Designed by the Architect Ippolito Pestellini Laparelli and his studio 2050+, the exhibition expands the conversation around practice through various public programs.
