[Nettime-ro] S-au anuntat directoarele Bienalei de la Venezia din 2005

S-au anuntat directoarele Bienalei de la Venezia pentru anul 2005:

La Biennale di Venezia
International Art Exhibition
Three names for a three-year project

Venice, 12 August 2004. In 2005, there will be two directors in charge of
the Biennale di Venezia’s International Art Exhibition: for the first time,
these will both be women, Maria de Corral and Rosa Martinez from Spain.
Also in 2005, but in the autumn, the Biennale will promote an international
symposium on contemporary art, to be curated by Robert Storr from the
United States. This decision, shared by the Board of Directors, was taken
by the Biennale’s President, Davide Croff, who wished with these
nominations to encourage the Biennale di Venezia’s project for renewal in
the Visual Arts sector in total coherence and continuity with its tradition
dating back from over a century.

President Croff’s intentions are that the Fondazione should now become an
active interlocutor, a point of reference that is involved and responsive,
and not merely a container for the activities in the Visual Arts Sector.
The Directors – granted full cultural autonomy – will draw up their
exhibition projects in line with the general thematic and cultural
objectives the Biennale has proposed them, and which it has shared and
defined with them over these past few months.

The Fondazione’s new initiative will have a scope of three years. In 2005,
the exhibition will explore the state of contemporary art from two points
of view: a look at the relationship between the present and the most
significant past; a second look on the relationship between the present and
the most innovative trends. 

The two sections will be proposed in two separate spaces and will each be
curated by one of the two Directors. Maria de Corral will be responsible
for the exhibition offering a retrospective approach, to be held in the
Italian Pavilion. Rosa Martinez will produce the exhibition dedicated to a
greater extent to the latest forms, to be held in the Arsenale di Venezia.
Both will certainly make bold and trend-setting selections with an eye to
creating exhibitions that the Biennale wishes to be strongly characterised.
With his symposium in the autumn, Robert Storr will co-ordinate a project
of analysis and study of the state of contemporary art (its codes,
languages, new and old paradigms) inviting the greatest figures in the
world of contemporary art to Venice for a meeting between artists,
theoreticians, critics and experts. 

The 2005 symposium will constitute the introduction and starting point for
the 2007 International Art Exhibition, to be directed by Storr himself.

The project, which over the course of the three years will develop an
integrated series of initiatives involving Italian and international cities
and institutions, is the result of a joint collaboration that the president
and directors of the Biennale have defined in recent months with the
Directors selected today.

Maria de Corral and Rosa Martinez are two of the most committed and
appreciated experts at international level. One trained in Madrid, the
other in Barcelona, and they also represent two different generations whose
professional careers have interwoven: both have been curators of the
Spanish Pavilion at the Biennale, in 1986 and 2003 respectively. They are
two personalities marked by a shared cultural matrix, which is necessary to
facilitate the coherence between the two sections for which they will be
responsible. Robert Storr, an artist and critic of world-wide fame, has
been curator of the Museum of Modern Art in New York and has already
participated at the Biennale di Venezia.

Drawing upon their experience and reciprocal acquaintance, the three
Directors will enable the realisation of the three-year project in a manner
marked by close collaboration and full agreement.
