The 59th International Art Exhibition of La Biennale di Venezia is curated by Cecilia Alemani with the theme The Milk of Dreams. The exhibition will be open to the public from Saturday 23 April to Sunday 27 November 2022.
As Commissioner for Australia, the Australia Council is pleased to announce Marco Fusinato and Alexie Glass-Kantor have been selected as the artist and curator for Australia’s representation at the 59th International Art Exhibition of La Biennale di Venezia. Fusinato’s exhibition will be presented at the Australian Pavilion within the historic Giardini della Biennale precinct from April to November 2022.
Marco Fusinato has led a distinguished career as a contemporary Australian artist and musician. Combining gallery practices and live performance, Fusinato works extensively across installation, photography, performance, recording, and publishing. His overall aesthetic project combines allegorical appropriation with an interest in the intensity of a gesture or event.
Alexie Glass-Kantor is one of Australia’s most highly regarded curators, currently the Executive Director of Artspace in Sydney and the curator of Encounters for Art Basel Hong Kong
Australia Council CEO Adrian Collette AM said: “We are excited to announce Marco Fusinato and Alexie Glass-Kantor as Australia’s representatives for the Venice Biennale in 2022 and look forward to the realisation of this work that will reflect the richness of Australia’s creativity.”
