From 9th May to 22nd November 2015 will be open to the public the 56th International Exhibition of Contemporary Art. You will participate in this exhibition, which this year is entitled “All the Word’s Futures”, directed by Okwui Enzevor, art critic. The exhibition will be hosted at the Giardini della Biennale and in the exhibition spaces of the Arsenale.
Everything here is exhibited against the backdrop of the Biennale’s 120-year history. Fragments of the past of various kinds may be found in every corner, given also the fact that the Biennale is active in Art, Architecture, Dance, Theatre, Music, and Cinema. Grenada, Mauritius, Mongolia, Mozambique and the Republic of the Seychelles are the countries that participating for the first time in the exhibition. Rather than one overarching theme that gathers and encapsulates diverse forms and practices into one unified field of vision, All the World’s Futures is informed by a layer of intersecting Filters. These Filters are a constellation of parameters that circumscribe multiple ideas, which will be touched upon to both imagine and realize a diversity of practices. In 2015, the 56th International Art Exhibition – la Biennale di Venezia will employ the historical trajectory of the Biennale itself, over the course of its one hundred and twenty years existence, as a Filter through which to reflect on both the current “state of things” and the “appearance of things”.
“All the World’s Futures” will take the present “state of things” as the ground for its dense, restless, and exploratory project that will be located in a dialectical field of references and artistic disciplines.
