Frontiers Reimagined - Official Collateral Event of the 56th International Art Exhibition of la Biennale di Venezia

Museo di Palazzo Grimani
Venice, Italy

Tagore Foundation International and Soprintendenza speciale per il patrimonio storico, artistico ed etnoantropologico e per il polo museale della città di Venezia e dei comuni della Gronda lagunare are pleased to announce their presentation of Frontiers Reimagined, a major exhibition that will open to the public at the Museo di Palazzo Grimani on 9 May, 2015 in tandem with the inauguration of the 56th International Art Exhibition of la Biennale di Venezia. Curated by Sundaram Tagore, with co-curator Marius Kwint, the exhibition will explore the theme of cultural boundaries through new and recent works, some of which were created specifically for the presentation, by established and emerging artists from around the world. The site-specific installation is juxtaposed by the architecture and collection of the Museo di Palazzo Grimani, a 16th century palace turned state museum, which holds a unique place in Venetian history and architecture. The recently restored palazzo houses a historic collection of artwork by Hieronymus Bosch, Giorgione, Vasari, as well some of the most important frescoes in the city, by Italian Mannerist painters Francesco Salviati, Federico Zuccari and Camillo Mantovano. Comprising works made by forty-four artists in a variety of media, Frontiers Reimagined will demonstrate the intellectual and aesthetic richness that can emerge in today’s globalized art world when artists engage in intercultural dialogue. Sundaram Tagore and Marius Kwint have selected the artists in the exhibition for their shared global perspective, as seen in both their artistic explorations and their practice of living and working across physical borders, stretching from the West to Asia to Africa. Artists presented in the exhibition include Artists presented in the exhibition include: Miya Ando, Alfredo and Isabel Aquilizan, Osi Audu, Frances Barth, Edward Burtynsky, Kamolpan Chotvichai, Christo and Jeanne-Claude, Tom Doyle, Golnaz Fathi, Olivia Fraser, April Gornik, Denise Green, Sasha Huber, Georges Fikry Ibrahim, Fré Ilgen, Kenro Izu, Kim Joon, Nathan Slate Joseph, Aaron Taylor Kuffner, Jane Lee, Tayeba Begum Lipi, Hassan Massoudy, Vittorio Matino, Ricardo Mazal, Vik Muniz, Judith Murray, Michael Petry, Robert Polidori, Chatchai Puipia, Sohan Qadri, Robert Rauschenberg, Sebastião Salgado, Nino Sarabutra, Hiroshi Senju, Joel Shapiro, Donald Sultan, Jack Tworkov, Lee Waisler, Susan Weil, Morgan Wong, Robert Yasuda, and Chun Kwang Young.
