The Venice Biennale opens on June 12, 2005
After the three-day long professional preview, the Venice Biennale opens to the public on June 12, 2005. Herewith, a brief agenda of the events:
The 51st International Art Exhibition
This 51st edition of the Biennale features two main projects: “The Experience of Art” and “Always a Little Further” curated respectively by the Spaniards María de Corral and Rosa Martínez. The former, hosted in the Italian Pavilion, in the Giardini della Biennale presents paintings, videos and installations by 42 international artists - from established ones such as Bruce Nauman, Francis Bacon or Antoni Tàpies to younger and promising artists like Maider López. The latter, located at the Arsenale, features works by another 49 artists, most of them conceived or made especially in situ for this exhibition. Its name “Always a Little Further” inspired by the comic character Corto Maltese addreses those “who, as the traveler, dare to venture into new territories and go beyond the known horizons” and remarks the special attention given to non-Western artists in this exhibition. Parallel to these two main projects, other ten related installations will be scattered within the city and in outdoor exhibition areas outside these two venues.
