Russia is participating in the 55th International Art Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia with Russian artist Vadim Zakharov’s exhibition Danaë, curated by Udo Kittelmann. Vadim Zakharov’s show focuses on the ancient Greek myth of Danaë, the mother of Perseus by Zeus. The myth of Zeus and Danaë has inspired many works of art, including the picture by Rembrand which was damaged in 1985 by a madman who threw sulphuric acid onto the canvas. Vadim Zakharov gives the mythol... [more]

Posted 7/2/13

Berlinde de Bruyckere is representing Belgium at the 55th International Art Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia 2013. De Bruyckere has conceived a site-specific installation for the Belgian Pavilion that is set in a very dark environment. Berlinde de Bruyckere is known for her scuptures that explore life and death. For her sculpture that reminds of a wounded tree or bones, she invited the writer J.M. Coetzee, winner of the 2003 nobel prize for Literature, to serve as a curator and artistic col... [more]

Warning: For their presentations at this year’s Venice Art Biennale, France and Germany swapped their pavilions, so please watch the signage if you visit the show! I think that this is a fantastic idea. Imagine France is Germany, Europe is Asia, and she is he, and dogs are cats, and everything is everything. There is also some very good reason that the German pavilion features works by Ai Weiwei, Romuald Karmakar, Santu Mofokeng, Dayanita Singh, but damn, I guess you just want to see Ai W... [more]

THE BURNING RING OF FIRE Daniel Rolnik on the gamble of getting a booth at Basel Whenever I think about art fairs, the first thing that comes to mind is money. Like how Art Basel can cost a gallery well over $10,000 for a small booth, which means they have to sell at least $20,000 worth of art (based upon a 50/50 split with each artist) just to cover their upfront cost. Still leaving the ungodly debt of crating, shipping, handling, installing, flying, eating, driving, drugging, and stain... [more]

Notes on ‘The Encyclopedic Palace’ A Venetian tour through the Biennale with Federico Florian That day, the Yellow Emperor showed the poet his palace. They left behind, in long succession, the first terraces on the west which descend, like the steps of an almost measureless amphitheater, to a paradise or garden whose metal mirrors and intricate juniper hedges already prefigured the labyrinth. They lost themselves in it, gaily at first, as if condescending to play a game, but after... [more]

Last weekend I travelled to Basel for a conference. It's been years since I was in Basel, so many years, that my memories of the city are vague, but after twenty-four hours, I remembered where I was. Things tend to stay the same in Switzerland. In the years since I first went to Basel, the world has become a smaller place, Russia has assumed a role as a world power, China has become a leading economic and political force to be reckoned with, the Middle East has become increasingly unstable, global w...

Art fairs can be exclusive affairs. And they certainly do encourage that notion, with their hallowed and inscrutable VIP lounges, wealthy collector-types air kissing dealers across the aisles, art consultants dashing around “shopping” for private collections, bottles of champagne popped for only certain clients, and most of all the money, das Geld, de l’argent or however you want to call it spilling forth from discreet Swiss bank accounts to purchase four-, five- or six-figures worth of contempo...
