XIII Florence Biennale
External Feminine, Eternal Change
Fortezza da Basso, Florence, Italy, 23- 31 October 2021
"With its XIII edition, the Florence Biennale was challenged by all the difficulties of having to organise an international event in 2021, a year severely marked by the consequences of the Covid-19 pandemic. Despite the adverse historical moment, the event was once again a success, managing to bring over 460 artists and designers from more than 70 countries to the Fortezza da Basso.​​​​​​​
The theme chosen for this edition focused on the polychrome and multiform universe of femininity: ETERNAL FEMININE | ETERNAL CHANGE. Concepts of Femininity in Contemporary Art and Design, investigated by the participating artists and designers in its many facets, starting with two major guidelines. On the one hand, the idea that outlines femininity in its immutable essence, which has inspired various of the most important artistic and literary creations in human history. On the other hand, the idea of the perennial change that characterises the contemporary world and that also affects femininity, which is in constant transformation through the thrust of social and cultural movements." *excerpt taken from the Florence Biennale website*
