What will happen at the art exhibition in Venice in 2017?
After La Biennale di Venezia announced Christine Macel as new curator for next year's International Art Exhibition, it seems as if the walk through the city's Giardini - where most of the country pavilions are located - will become thrilling again. Recently, La Biennale di Venezia President Paolo Baratta introduced Christine Macel as specialist for the investigation of new energies from all parts of the world.
Every two years, La Biennale di Venezia Art Exhibition is the place where artistic views on our world are on show from spring until autumn; in 2017, it will be open from 13 May until 26 November. Biennale Venice isn't an art fair where galleries sell art works. It's a sort of an international mega-project where contemporary artists in their role as sensual analysts of the world society present new perspectives. To participate in the prestigious Biennale Venice is a sort of 'patent of nobility'. Last year's curator Okwui Enwezor orchestrated the exhibition under the title 'All The World's Futures'; the title of next year's Biennale isn't published yet, but the selection of French curator Christine Macel (born 1969 in Paris, Chief Curator at Centre Pompidou, taught contemporary art and is author of articles and books about art; biography) whose exhibitions and activities reach from photography over architecture, young film productions to techno music, sounds promising.
