Cecilia Alemani, Kamini Sawhney
Cecilia Alemani is the Artistic Director of the upcoming Venice Biennale (2022) and will be its first female, Italian director. She is also the Director and Chief Curator of the High Line in New York, an unusual public art space that she describes as a “museum without a ceiling”.
Built on a historic, elevated railway line it offers visitors a walk through beautiful vegetation, spectacular art installations, performances, delicious food and a chance to connect with friends – all while enjoying a unique perspective of New York City. In this conversation, Cecilia will talk about what it means to bring together horticulture, architecture and art in a multilayered experience for visitors.
The Directors’ Cut series, hosted by MAP Director Kamini Sawhney, offers a glimpse into how the institution of the museum is being reimagined and reinvented today, and presents a unique opportunity to hear from reputed practitioners in museums around the world.
