On 9th of May, another edition of the Venice Biennale will be open, staying on view all the way until the 22nd of November. The 56th International Art Exhibition is titled All the World’s Futures, and will feature 90 national participants exhibiting in the historical Pavilions at the Giardini, at the Arsenale, and in the city of Venice. Along with the main part of the biennale there are 44 collateral events, and other shows organized in the context of the occasion.
We just received this video of Katrin Fridriks installing her work at the Palazzo Bembo for the Personal Structures – Crossing Borders show organized by the Global Arts Affairs Foundation and European Cultural Center Venice. Exhibiting along with over 100 artists, representing over 50 countries, this show will bring a “cross section” of today’s art, both established and emerging. Submitting works that result from their subjective, personal reflection on the concepts of “Time, Space and Existence,” the extensive artists’ lineup includes such names as Carl Andre (USA), Daniel Buren (FRA), Katrin Fridriks (ISL), Joseph Kosuth (USA), Francois Morellet (FRA), Hermann Nitsch (AUT), Yoko Ono (JAP), Roman Opalka (FRA), Lawrence Weiner (USA), and many more.
Fridriks is currently also showing in her native Iceland, as a part of Just Painted I & II show at the Museum of Reykjavik (til June 7), and has a major monograph release with Skira edition as well as a print release scheduled for later this year with her London-based gallery – Lazarides.
