Event Details

The 55th Venice Biennale, one of the world’s major contemporary art exhibitions, takes place June 1 to November 24, 2013. This year, in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Elysee Treaty between France and Germany, and in acknowledgement of the current working reality of the art world, in which international cooperation and communication has become a matter of course, the countries of Germany and France will exhibit in one another’s permanent pavilions.

 

In contrast to the typical country pavilion in which one artist is featured, this year the German curators have selected four artists to represent Germany at the French pavilion: Ai Weiwei, Romuald Karmakar, Santu Mofokeng and Dayanita Singh. The American pavilion will feature artist Sarah Sze and her project Triple Point.

 

This year’s theme evokes the patent filed in 1955 by the self-taught Italian-American artist Marino Auriti for an Encyclopedic Palace, an imaginary museum that was meant to house all worldly knowledge.

Organized in cooperation with the Hirshhorn Museum
