Central International Exhibition:
"Think with the Senses - Feel with the Mind
Art in the Present Tense"
National and regional pavilions and presentations.
Parallel exhibitions and projects.
The appointment of Robert Storr (Dean of the Yale School of Art in New Haven, Connecticut, USA, since 2006) as the artistic director of the 52nd international art exhibition of 2007 was announced already during the preparations of the last Venice Biennale (2005). As one of his first official acts in this function, he chaired the symposium about biennials "Where art worlds meet: multiple modernities and the global salon", organized by the Venice Biennial from 9 - 12 December, 2005 (see official website).
The 2007 Venice Biennial's Central
International Exhibition curated by Storr has the title: "Think
with the Senses - Feel with the Mind. Art in the Present Tense". Works
by about 100 artists and groups will be shown at the Arsenale and the Italian
Pavilion in the Giardini, among them several site-specific installations.
of contemporary African art and the Pavilion
of Turkey, both in the Arsenale as well, are considered by Storr as an
integral part of his curatorial project.
The number of national and regional pavilions and presentations has increased
up to 77 this year, a figure as high as never before. In addition, a hardly
manageable amount of parallel art projects will take place again
throughout the whole city.
Corresponding to the concept of our website, we will focus our report about the 52nd Venice Biennial - like in the 3 previous editions - first and foremost on the presence of art from Africa, Asia and Latin America.
