The 10th CEI Venice Forum for Contemporary Art Curators from Central Eastern Europe organised by the Trieste Contemporanea Committee under the auspices of the Central European Initiative will be held on 22 April 2022 at the Academy of Fine Arts of Venice, from 11 am to 3 pm.

The Forum is a CEI Feature Event and a Continental Breakfast project. | It is conceived and organised by the Trieste Contemporanea Committee in cooperation with the CEI–Central European Initiative and in collaboration with the Academy of Fine Arts in Venice. | The event is being held under the patronage of the CEI–Central European Initiative, the Regione del Veneto, the Città di Venezia, the Comune di Trieste and the Ca’ Foscari University of Venice. | It is supported by the CEI, the Regione autonoma Friuli Venezia Giulia and the BEBA Foundation of Venice.

This year’s Forum takes place after an unprecedented global pandemic which deeply impacted our lives, while the health of the planet is increasingly affected by human actions and even a war is going on in the heart of Europe. This situation of major concern leads us to call the speakers to focus on the contemporary art practices at times of crisis, as explained by Lorenzo Fusi, convenor for Trieste Contemporanea of the 2022 edition of the Forum.
