Palazzo Grassi presents the first appointment of "Lo stato dell'arte", a new cycle promoted by the institution with the curatorship of Barbara Carnevali, Director of études in Philosophy at the Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales (EHESS) in Paris, which invites important personalities from the world of international culture to create an original contribution starting from a personal reflection on the state of the art today.

The protagonists of the cycle, from very different disciplinary fields, are called to produce a text, which will be published in its entirety in a dedicated series published by Marsilio Editori, Venice, in collaboration with Palazzo Grassi.

The cycle is inaugurated by the English-speaking writer Rachel Cusk, author of several novels with an intimate and reflective character, such as the Outline trilogy.
On Friday 2 December at 6 pm she will be at the Teatrino, together with Barbara Carnevali, meet the audience of the Teatrino di Palazzo Grassi to present their reflection on the challenges, the promises, the different issues without which art loses its meaning.
