GIARDINI - Central Pavilion

PAOLO BARATTA - President of la Biennale di Venezia

We celebrate this year the 120th anniversary of the first Art Exhibition (1895). The International Exhibition curated by Okwui Enwezor expands from the Central Pavilion at the Giardini to the Arsenale, and to external areas. 89 partecipating countries (58 un 1997), 29 in the historic pavilions in the Giardini, 31 in the spaces dedicated to the countries within the Arsenale (where restoration work continues on 16th century buildings), and the rest in other buildings in Venice. 44 Collateral Events presented by non-profit organisations and admitted by our curator. The Biennale 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. Curiger, Gioni, Enwezor: three chapters in a research process engaged by la Biennale 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 judgment, 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. 136 artists, of which 89 for the first time, from 53 countries, many of them from geographical areas that we paradoxically insist on defining as peripheral. 159 works on display are expressly realized for this year edition. In the more intimate Biennales as in the ones that more dramatically draw in history, what is important is that the Exhibition must always be seen as a venue for free and indipendent dialogue.

OKWUI ENWEZOR - Curator of the 56th International Art Exhibition

Rather than one overarching theme that gathers and encapsulates diverse forms and pratices into one unified field of vision, All the World's Futures is informed by a layer of three intersecting Filters, namely; Garden of Disorder, Liveness: On Epic Duration, and Reading Capital. Questi The three Filters represent a constellation of parameters, which will be touched upon in order to imagine and realize a diversity of pratices. In 2015, the 56th International Art Exhibition, La Biennale di Venezia will employ the historical trajectory of the Biennale itself, one that I have so far sketched out as a Filter through which to scan the latent historical body of the event. The goal of three Filters is to describe both the current state of things and the appearance of things. With each Filter superimposed on the other, the 56th International Art Exhibition will delve into the contemporary global reality as one of the constant realignment, adjustment, recalibration, motility, and shape-shifting. It will play host to what could be described as a Parliament of Forms whose orchestration and episodic unfolding will be broadly global in scope. At the core of the project is the notion of the exhibition as stage where historical and counter-historical projects will be explored. These projects, works, and voices, like an orchestra will occupy the spaces of the Biennale and pre-occupy the time and thinking of the public.
