Mickey’s great and all, but Minnie is the one to get me to pop my foot like I’m in a rom com. Happy 90th birthday #minniemouse
Thank you for letting me hug you while also checking out your man (second picture)
See you this Thursday in Venice!
Cruising Pavilion: After Dark. Thursday 22 November at 6pm. Teatrino di Palazzo Grassi
Opened on the occasion of the 16th edition of the Venice Architecture Biennale (@labiennale), the @CruisingPavilion curated by @pierreamateos, @rasmusmyrup, @octaveperrault and @charlesteyssou, explores the relations between dissident sexualities and architecture through the practice of cruising, which historically refers to homosexual encounters in public locations, such as gardens, cinemas, public urinals, as well as spaces conceived for this specific purpose, such as sex-clubs and saunas. How do these spaces of politico-sexual freedom and utopia emerge? How has the practice of cruising inspired works in art, cinema and literature? Can we speak of an architecture of cruising? How did the commodification of the LGBTQI＋ counter-cultures and the digital change the practice of cruising? The origins of this project and the aesthetic stakes it raises are addressed through screenings, talks and readings.
The curators of the Cruising Pavilion present the project in detail, before a conversation with artist Lili Reynaud-Dewar, whose work featured in the pavilion and is on view at Punta della Dogana in 'Dancing with Myself' until Sunday 16 December, 2018.
Talk in English with simultaneous interpretation in Italian. Free entry until capacity is reached.
The Cruising Pavilion was presented at Spazio Punch, Giudecca, Venezia.
