A discussion between the artists Joan Jonas (U.S. Pavilion), Camille Norment (Nordic Pavilion) and Pamela Rosenkranz (Swiss Pavilion).
Please browse through the video excerpts of the first cross-pavilion artist talk at la Biennale di Venezia, an official event of the Biennale which featured a discussion between artists Joan Jonas, Camille Norment and Pamela Rosenkranz. Developed through the collaboration of commissioners OCA – Office for Contemporary Art Norway (Nordic Pavilion), the MIT List Visual Arts Center (U.S. Pavilion),and Swiss Arts Council Pro Helvetia (Swiss Pavilion), this novel collaboration involved the three pavilion curators Katya García-Antón (Norway), Paul Ha / Ute Meta Bauer (USA), and Susanne Pfeffer (Switzerland), as well as the directors of the commissioning organisations: OCA, Norway (Director Katya García-Antón), the MIT List Visual Arts Center, USA (Director Paul Ha), and Pro Helvetia, Switzerland (Director of Visual Arts Marianne Burki and Director of Biennial Projects Sandi Paucic).
In this discussion – the first of its kind at la Biennale di Venezia – three different generations of artists gave a unique insight to their artistic practice and thought from the perspective of different periods, contexts and experiences. Their thoughts bridged artistic synergies across pavilions within the Giardini, as well as cast their own light across wider issues explored in la Biennale de Venezia.
The discussion was moderated by Tim Marlow, Director of Artistic Programmes, Royal Academy of Arts, London and introduced by Jan Dalley, Arts Editor of The Financial Times, and Katya García-Antón, curator of The Nordic Pavilion and Director of Office for Contemporary Art Norway (OCA).
