The famous Venice Art Biennale, opens its doors with a magnificent preview this coming May 30th and 31st.
In this 55th International Art Exhibition, the art biennale for 2013 is named The Encyclopedic Palace. It will take place from June 1st to November 24th 2013 in the romantic city of venice in Italy.
The title chosen by curator Massimiliano Gioni for the 55th International Art Exhibition is Il Palazzo Enciclopedico / The Encyclopedic Palace. Massimiliano Gioniintroduced the choice of theme evoking the Italo-American self-taught artist Marino Auriti who “on November 16, 1955 filed a design with the US Patent office depicting his Palazzo Enciclopedico (The Encyclopedic Palace), an imaginary museum that was meant to house all worldly knowledge, bringing together the greatest discoveries of the human race, from the wheel to the satellite.
Auriti’s plan was never carried out, of course, but the dream of universal, all-embracing knowledge crops up throughout history, as one that eccentrics like Auriti share with many other artists, writers, scientists, and prophets who have tried - often in vain - to fashion an image of the world that will capture its infinite variety and richness.”
Do not miss the opportunity to follow this 55th International Art Exhibition from June 1st to November 24th, 2013 at the Giardini and at the Arsenale, as well as in various venues the city of Venice.
