ART, VENICE and NYC!

Standard

The Italian curator Massimiliano Gioni will participate with Daniel Baumann and Ralph Rugoff at  Outsider Art Fair 2013. Founded in 1993, the Outsider Art Fair quickly became a critical and commercial success as well as the leading event in the field of outsider, self-taught, and folk art. The fair was recognized for its nonconformist spirit, and crowds began to flock annually to New York ‘s Puck Building, the event’s location for its first 15 years. This year, under the leadership of Wide Open Arts, a new company formed by art dealer Andrew Edlin, the Outsider Art Fair is moving to Chelsea to the site of the former Dia Art Foundation, where visitors can expect to find prime examples of art by both celebrated and newly discovered artists.
Massimiliano Gioni will curate the 55th International Art Exhibition that  will take place in Venice from June 1st to November 24th 2013, and the title chosen by the curator is: The Encyclopedic Palace. The exhibition will place at its heart “a reflection on the ways in which images have been used to organize knowledge and shape our experience of the world.”

Inspired by what scholar Hans Belting has called “an anthropology of images”, the Biennale Arte 2013 curated by Massimiliano Gioni will attempt “an inquiry in the realms of the imaginary and the functions of imagination. “
