The 56th International Art Exhibition forms a unitary itinerary that starts at the Central Pavilion (Giardini) and continues at the Arsenale, with over136 artistsfrom53countries, of whom89will be showing here for the first time. Of works on display,159are expressly realized for this year edition.”This is our 56thedition. The Biennale is now 120 years old, and year after year it moves forward and builds on its own history, which is formed of many memories but, in particular, a long succession of different perspectives from which to observe the phenomenon of contemporary artistic creation.”Paolo Barattaintroduces this year’s edition with these words, recalling that “Bice Curiger brought us the theme of perception, of ILLUMInation or light as an autonomous and revitalizing element, and Massimiliano Gioni was interested in observing the phenomenon of artistic creation from within, and turned his attention to the inner impulses that drive mankind and the artist to create images and bring representations to life.””The world before us today exhibits deep divisions and wounds, pronounced inequalities and uncertainties as to the future. Despite the great progress made in knowledge and technology, we are currently negotiating an ‘age of anxiety’. And once more, the Biennale observes the relationship between art and the development of the human, social, and political world, as external forces and phenomena loom large over it. Our aim is to investigate how the tensions of the outside world act on the sensitivities and the vital and expressive energies of artists, on their desires and theirinner song. One of the reasons the Biennale invitedOkwui Enwezoras curator Barattastates was for his special sensitivity in this regard.””Curiger, Gioni, Enwezor, a trilogy in a sense President Barattarecaps three chapters in a research process engaged by la Biennale di Venezia to explore the benchmarks that can help us formulate aesthetic judgments on contemporary art, a “critical” question following the demise of the avant gardes and “non art”.””Okwui does not claim to pass judgement or prognosticate; his wish is to bring together arts and artists from throughout the world and from different disciplines, to instate a Parliament of Forms, as it were. A global Exhibition where we may question or at least listen to artists coming from 53 countries, many of them from geographical areas that we paradoxically insist on defining as peripheral. This will also help us uncover the latest tendencies regarding the geography and routes taken by contemporary art, thanks to a special project focusing on theCurriculaof the artists operating around the world. A Parliament for a Biennale of varying and intense vitality, therefore.””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. () To borrow the words of Walter Benjamin, the Biennale hosts “dialectical images”.”And once again, I am glad concludesBaratta that I did not listen to the regrettable considerations made in 1998 claiming that the exhibition with foreign pavilions was outmoded and should be done away with, perhaps in favor of a white cube, an aseptic space in which to erase history, exercise our abstract presumptions, or offer hospitality for the dictatorship of the market. It is our multi faceted, complex reality that helps us avoid perils such as these. The great mountain of the fragments of our history grows year by year. Opposite stands the even greater mountain of all that was not shown in past Biennales.””In 1974 la Biennale di Venezia, following a major institutional restructuring and the revision of its rules and articles of constitution, launched an ambitious and unprecedented four year plan of events and activities. Part of the programs of 1974 were dedicated to Chile, thus actively foregrounding a gesture of solidarity toward that country in the aftermath of the violent coup d’état, in which General Augusto Pinochet overthrew the government of Salvador Allende in 1973. Bringing practitioners across the fields of visual art, cinema, music, theater, dance, and performance, the events of the 1974 Art Biennale were spread across the entire city of Venice. Today, this remarkable and transformative episode in the history of the Biennale is largely forgotten. The dedication of the program of events to Chile and against fascism remains one of the most explicit attempts, in recent memory, by which an exhibition of the stature of the Art Biennale not only responds to, but courageously steps forward to share the historical stage with the political and social contexts of its time. It goes without saying that, in view of the current turmoil around the world, that theBiennale’sEventi del 1974has been a curatorial inspiration.””In response to this remarkable episode and the rich documentation it generated,

the 56thInternational Art Exhibition:All the World’s Futures, will introduce theARENA,an active space dedicated to continuous live programming across disciplinesand located within theCentral Pavilion in the Giardini. The linchpin of this program will be the epic live reading of all three volumes ofKarl Marx’sDas Kapital(Capital). Here,Das Kapitalwill serve asa kind ofOratoriothatwill be continuously read live, throughout the exhibition’s seven months’ duration.””Designed byaward winning Ghanaian/British architectDavid Adjaye, the ARENA will serve asa gathering place of the spoken word, the art of the song, recitals, film projections, and aforum for public discussions. Taking the concept of the Sikh event, the Akhand Path (a recitation of the Sikh holy book read continuously over several days by a relay of readers),Das Kapitalwill be read as a dramatic text by trained actors, directed by artist and filmmakerIsaac Julien, during the entire duration of this year Art Biennale.””Carrying out the concept of “Liveness: On Epic Duration,” theArt Biennale has commissioned several new scores and artists’ performances, to be presented continuously in the ARENA. Here, we are especially interested in the concept of the song and the potential for the human voice to be an instrument that carries forward the pace of a narrative.””Olaf Nicolaiis developing a new performance work that draws inspiration from Luigi Nono’s two part compositionUn volto, e del mare / Non consumiamo Marx(1968), an innovative piece for voice and magnetic tape, as well as the Italian composer’s later attempts to develop a critical and political statement by means of music, drawing inspiration for his lyrics from Cesare Pavese’s poems, from wall writings seen in the streets of Paris, and even found voices which he randomly recorded live during street demonstrations!Joana Hadjithomas and Khalil Joreigewill present a daily reading of their artist bookLatent Images: Diary of a Photographer, the third part of theirWonder Beirutproject. In addition to its text, this book includes thirty eight photographic plates selected from among hundreds of reels of film exposed, but until now never developed, by the Lebanese photographerAbdallah Farahbetween 1997 and 2006.Jason Moran’sSTAGEDwill map and investigate the tempos of work songs sung in prisons, fields, and houses. In a sampling of songs that inmates sing while working in the Louisiana State Penitentiary at Angola, the tempos range from 57 to 190 beats per minute.Jeremy Dellerwill explore the question of life and working conditions in factories, based on archival materials from the nineteenth century through the present.Charles Gaines’s new original master composition for the Art Biennale is derived from his most recent body of work,Notes on Social Justice, a series of large scale drawings of musical scores from songs, some borrowed from as early as the American Civil War (1860 1865) and others dating from the mid twentieth century.Mathieu Kleyebe Abonnencwill present in theArt Biennale a temporary memorial to the music and personality of the legendary African American musician, singer, and composer Julius Eastman (1940 1990), whose singular and inimitable contribution to contemporary, avant garde classical music will be on display in the ARENA throughout the Exhibition.the TOMORROWwill focus their attention onDas Kapital, not just as an abstract field of logical and economical devices, but rather as a potential repository of stories and figures. The TOMORROW will offer weekend seminars, during which the focus will turn to the narrative and epic dimension of Marx’s book.””The focus on live performances and actions will extend in the Central Pavilion beyond the ARENA and into the Biblioteca of la Biennale, whereMounira Al Solh’sNOA(Not Only Arabic), a limited edition periodical founded in 2008, will be made available for solo viewings that must be arranged by appointment. During the preview (May 6 8), also at the Biblioteca,Lili Reynaud Dewarand her students will read a selection of texts from the mid 1990s to today analysis, testimonies, manifestos dealing with notions of intimacy, vulnerability, and promiscuity in the context of the AIDS epidemic.””Connecting the 56thArt Biennale’s two main venues, the Giardini and the Arsenale,Sadane Afif’s performance pieceThe Laguna’s Tribute: A Corner Speaker in Venicewill be staged at the corner of Via Garibaldi and the Grand Canal. Spectators there will see and hear a local Corner Speaker either read a text or sing the lyrics of songs composed by friends of the artist.””A number of performance works will also be presented in the Arsenale, beginning with a new project byJennifer Allora and Guillermo Calzadilla,In the Midst of Things, in which a choral group will perform an arrangement of Joseph Haydn’s oratorioThe Creation.””In the Corderie,Theaster Gateswill activate his new multimedia installationMartyr Construction, a work addressing the question of the recurring dissolution and demolition of church parishes in African American and Hispanic neighborhoods across the United States.”
