Selected artists are based on previous exhibition history and the strength of their curatorial proposal for the project. Open to all artists working in all media, the exhibition will have a predominant focus on professional artists from Asia, SE Asia, Africa, Caribbean and Russia and surrounding regions. The aim will however be, to curate an experience that will avoid “labeling” artists geographically, but rather have the artworks speak for themselves.
About the Palazzo
The palace was commissioned in the late 15th century by the aristocratic Lando Family, and built on designs by Mauro Codussi, (1440–1504) an Italian architect of the early-Renaissance. He was one of the first to bring the classical style of the early renaissance to Venice to replace the prevalent Gothic style. The present façade is a perfect example, of the Renaissance geometric style designed by Codussi between 1497 and 1500. In the 16th century, the new owners, the Corner family asked Michele Sanmicheli to reconstruct the interior.
The Main Floor ‘Piano Nobile’ is divided by a hallway entrance, and three grand rooms that reflect the classic type of Venetian palaces of the sixteenth century: some ancient frescoes and stucco still intact, rooms are joined by a large balcony overlooking the Grand Canal.
There are six rooms, all painted and adorned with significant antique stucco and spectacular terrazzo floors suited perfectly to an art exhibition those entrances from both historical and contemporary perspectives.
A last word
The project UTOPIA LOST / UTOPIA FOUND shall make a meaningful contribution to the program of during 57th International Art Exhibition, La Biennale di Venezia 2017 not only because of its high artistic quality, experimental methodology and innovative public programming but also since it engages the largest and most rapidly developing regions of the world that has historically been unrepresented as a common platform at the Venice Biennale.
