SUMMER FESTIVAL EXHIBITION 2018
In Jenseits von Gut und Böse schreibt Friedrich Nietzsche:
„Und wenn du lange in einen Abgrund blickst, blickt der Abgrund auch in dich hinein.“ Umgekehrt mag es hingegen auch sein, dass, wenn du lange genug
nach der Schönheit suchst, sie irgendwann von selbst an deine Tür klopft.
Kunst bedeutet zu einem großen Teil, das Sehen zu lernen.
Martin Grandits schafft es in seinem Werk die Ästhetik auch im Alltäglichen wahrzunehmen. Ein Logo, ein Brotaufstrich oder eine Bierbank – alles kann Grundlage für eine künstlerische Idee sein – und ein T-Shirt ist dabei als Trägermedium nicht weniger geeignet als eine auf Keilrahmen
gespannte Leinwand.
Mit beeindruckender Nonchalance assoziiert sich Martin Grandits zwischen Tinder und Picasso quer durch die Popkultur und Kunstgeschichte und macht meistens dort Halt, wo man es am wenigsten von ihm erwartet.
Sein Weggefährte ist dabei stets der kritische Blick und immer auch der Humor, einerseits als Stilmittel und andererseits als Waffe gegen das Pathetische.
„David Hassbach“

La Biennale di Venezia
May 11th to November 24th, 2019

Venice, July 16th 2018 – The President of La Biennale di Venezia, Paolo Baratta, and the curator of the 58th International Art Exhibition, Ralph Rugoff, met the press today at Ca’ Giustinian to launch the Biennale Arte 2019, which will take place from May 11th to November 24th 2018 (Preview May 8th, 9th and 10th) at the Giardini and the Arsenale, as well as around other venues in Venice.

The 58th International Art Exhibition will be titled May You Live in Interesting Times, after an ancient Chinese curse referring to periods of uncertainty, crisis and turmoil; “interesting times”, exactly as the ones we live in today.

Ralph Rugoff explained his choice as follows:

“At a moment when the digital dissemination of fake news and ‘alternative facts’ is corroding political discourse and the trust on which it depends, it is worth pausing whenever possible to reassess our terms of reference.”

“The 58th International Art Exhibition will not have a theme per se, but will highlight a general approach to making art and a view of art’s social function as embracing both pleasure and critical thinking.”

“Artists who think in this manner offer alternatives to the meaning of so-called facts by suggesting other ways of connecting and contextualising them.”

“May You Live in Interesting Times will aim to welcome its public to an expansive experience of the deep involvement, absorption and creative learning that art makes possible. This will entail engaging visitors in a series of encounters that are essentially playful, taking into account that it is when we play that we are most fully ‘human.’ This will mean tweaking aspects of the Exhibition format where possible to make sure they are sympathetically aligned with the character of the art being presented.” (See full statement attached)

President Paolo Baratta stated:

«In 1998, on this very same date, July 16, the reformed Biennale appointed Harald Szeemann as first curator of the new Biennale. This choice was suggested by the very history of the institution. The Art Exhibition traditionally resulted from the coming together of several exhibitions, each one with its own theme and curators. In 1980, one of these sections was titled Aperto (Open), a name that encapsulated a different atmosphere of openness to the world; this was also curated by Szeemann, among others. It is unsurprising that his first Biennale in 1999 was titled dAPERTutto (APERTO overALL). The germ of the 1980 exhibition thus grew into the International exhibition.”

“Through the appointment of Ralph Rugoff as Curator, we meant to contribute and give further formal clarity to the idea that we have nurtured in the last twenty years about the role of La Biennale and especially of the Art Exhibition.”

“We are committed to the principle that the institution must be a machine for desire whose mission is to buttress and boost our need to see further beyond, a need that art can help us fulfill. But the Biennale should also be the place where each single visitor is strongly encouraged to come face to face with the work of art. The institution, the places, the works selected by the Curator, their spatial display, the atmosphere that the institution can create, all of these must contribute to building favourable conditions that allow visitors to feel engaged when meeting the artwork, as if they were players on a fencing strip, ready for a bout

As usual, the 58th International Art Exhibition will also feature National Participations with their own exhibitions in the Pavilions at the Giardini and the Arsenale, as well as around the city centre of Venice. The next edition will also include a selection of Collateral Events, in which international institutions will present their exhibitions and initiatives in Venice concurrently with the 58th Exhibition.
