VENICE BIENNALE 2013: The ENCYCLOPEDIC PALACE
EVERY two years, the Venice Biennale becomes the epicentre for contemporary artists, collectors, critics and enthusiasts. Curated by the youngest artistic director in 110 years, Massimiliano Gioni, this year’s biennale features 158 artists representing 88 countries (10 of which are making their very first appearance). This year’s theme, “The Encyclopedic Palace,” is an ambitious pedagogical collection of works by both distinguished and lesser-known, self-taught artists.
Writer ALEXANDRA SARABIA discusses this year’s biennale and several notable artists showing at the exhibition in Venice Biennale 2013: The Encyclopedia Palace.
