Biennale Disegno Rimini is back for the fourth edition

Back to the journey, from the Grand Tour to fantasy

from 4 May to 28 July 2024

Fourth edition of the Rimini Biennial of Drawing, organised and curated by the Department of Culture and the Municipal Museums of Rimini, which returns to take place, after the pause caused by Covid-19, as usual between spring and summer with its consolidated format of exhibitions located in the various institutional venues - Museo della Città, Gambalunga Library, Palazzo del Fulgor and Castel Sismondo - and with the Open Circuit, an expression of direct and interacting dialogue with the city and its territory, which includes other exhibitions in private and public spaces (galleries, artists' and architecture studios, bookshops).
There will be 12 simultaneous exhibitions displaying 1,000 drawings from important international institutions such as the Royal Academy of San Fernando in Madrid and the Fonds Regionale d'Art Contemporain de Picardie, among others, and from private collections such as the Studiolo Rivi. The theme is Travel as an outcome and inspiration, but also as a recording and contamination from the present to the past.
On display are drawings ranging from Felice Giani's travel notebooks to those of Lorenzo Mattotti, from Piranesi's etchings to Thayaht's Novecento, from Morandi to Fontana and Fautrier, from the Carteles of Cuban cinema to the drawings of the first Italian animated film "The Rose of Baghdad", to the contemporary artists on show in the Drawing Yard.
In addition, there will be meetings with specialists, scholars and journalists, readings, lectures, performances, art talks, and educational workshops around drawing in all its meanings.
Opening cerimony on Saturday 4 May at Fulgor Cinema. From 6.30 pm to 9.00pm entrance free-of-charge to the 12th exhibitions
