The National Gallery of Canada is very proud to organize, with Kitty Scott, Carol and Morton Rapp Curator, Modern and Contemporary Art, Art Gallery of Ontario, the Canada Pavilion presentation of work by artist Geoffrey Farmer at La Biennale di Venezia 2017 – 57th International Art Exhibition, in Venice, Italy.
More than a hundred and twenty years after its founding, the Venice Biennale continues to captivate the art world every two years with the spectacle of a truly global survey of the very best of contemporary art.
In 2017 the Biennale will include representation from more than eighty invited nations, all showcasing their leading artists in national pavilions and exposition spaces. The prestigious Golden and Silver Lions, among the most coveted visual arts prizes in the world, will be awarded during the exhibition.
Founded in 1895, La Biennale di Venezia is the oldest and most widely recognized contemporary art event in the world. While the Biennale’s roots are in the visual arts, its scope now encompasses theatre, music, dance, film and architecture.
The International Art Exhibition runs from May to November in alternating years. The opening weeks of the exhibition see the “who’s who” of the art world assemble in Venice. Artists, museum directors, curators, gallerists, collectors and journalists from influential global newspapers, magazines, television and Web media are drawn to the Biennale to see acclaimed contemporary artists from around the world and to take the pulse of the international art scene. In 2015 eighty-nine countries participated in the Biennale’s 56th International Art Exhibition, which drew over half a million visitors.
Canada’s representation at the Biennale has played a part in shaping the role and place of Canadian contemporary art within international circles. The Canada Pavilion has helped to launch the international careers of many of our most celebrated artists, including Emily Carr, David Milne, Alfred Pellan, Paul-Émile Borduas, Jean Paul Riopelle, Jean Paul Lemieux, Alex Colville, Guido Molinari, Michael Snow, General Idea, Liz Magor, Geneviève Cadieux, Rodney Graham, Janet Cardiff & George Bures Miller, Jana Sterbak, Rebecca Belmore, David Altmejd, Mark Lewis, Steven Shearer, Shary Boyle and BGL.
Located in the heart of the historic Giardini di Castello, the Canada Pavilion boasts one of the most desirable locations in Venice. The Venice Biennale is the only international visual arts exhibition to which Canada sends official representation.
