Terry Adkins, Patricia Cronin, Jenny Holzer, Bruce Nauman in the Venice Biennale.

9 May to 22 November, 2015
Venice Biennale

The 56th Venice Biennale, All the Worlds Futures, opens this month. Academy Fellows and Residents in the exhibition are Terry Adkins, FAAR 2010, Patricia Cronin, FAAR 2007, Jenny Holzer RAAR 2004, and Bruce Nauman, RAAR 1987.   

We wish Terry Adkins were here for his inclusion in the Biennale. Lone Wolf Recital Corps says, “Big ups to curator Okwui Enwezor for keeping Terry's work in the global conversation about art of out time and putting it on the international stage.” An oral history interview with Terry by Calvin Reid has been recently published in Bomb Magazine. The book Terry Adkins:Recital edited by Ian Berry will be released this month and can now be pre-ordered at Amazon.  

Bruce Nauman is represented by a series of text-based neon sculptures made from 1972 to the early 1980s.

Daily 10am to 6pm
Closed on Monday

Patricia Cronin’s Shrine for Girls is one of 44 Collateral Events taking place off-site at venues throughout Venice. Cronin has installed piles of clothing to reference three international tragedies involving young girls. An early review call it “heartbreaking.”

Another solo Collateral Event features Jenny Holzer’s War Paintings. The works on exhibit at Museo Correr have been selected from a decade of the artist’s war paintings, a significant departure from the LED installations for which Holzer is best known.

The Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain is presenting a major solo exhibition by Bruce Nauman, the first in France in over 15 years. For the occasion, the artist made a careful selection of recent works never before shown in France, along with some earlier installations created from a wide array of media that he has explored throughout his career. The release of the exhibition catalog will be celebrated with a conference led by Robert Storr. Nauman's Land, Conference on Bruce Nauman is 27 May from 8pm to 9pm.
