11 May - 24 November 2019
58TH International Art Exhibition

The 58th International Art Exhibition, titled May You Live in Interesting Times, will be held from 11 May to 24 November 2019.

The title is an expression from the English language that for a long time was erroneously attributed to an ancient Chinese curse which evokes periods of uncertainty, crises and disorders; precisely "interesting times", like the ones we are experiencing.

The 58th Exhibition is curated by Ralph Rugoff, current director of the Hayward Gallery in London. He began his career as a critic and essayist: between 1985 and 2002 he wrote numerous articles and several writings for art magazines; published a collection of essays, Circus Americanus (1995), that explore cultural phenomena of the American West. At the same time he began working as an independent curator.
