On the occasion of her first solo exhibition in Asia at White Cube Hong Kong, Virginia Overton is in conversation with Cecilia Alemani, Director and Chief Curator of High Line Art, New York and Artistic Director of the 59th Venice Biennale.
Virginia Overton's work comprises installation, sculpture and photography, often beginning intuitively as a direct response to her physical presence in a particular space. Through a process of trial and error, she creates sculpture that is performative, sometimes obstructing, bisecting, dividing or joining the architecture of a space with works that are dramatic and minimal in feel.
Cecilia Alemani is an Italian curator based in New York. Currently, she is the Artistic Director of the upcoming 59th International Art Exhibition (2022) in Venice. Since 2011, she has been the Donald R. Mullen, Jr. Director & Chief Curator of High Line Art, the public art program presented by the High Line in New York. In 2018, Alemani served as Artistic Director of the inaugural edition of Art Basel Cities: Buenos Aires. In 2017, she curated the Italian Pavilion at the Venice Biennale.
