Pavillion at Venice Biennale Turns to Crowdfunding

Pietromarchi-300x240Bartolomeo Pietromarchiis, Curator of the International Art Exposition of the Venice Biennale, has proposed crowdfunding to support an exhibition in the Italian Pavillion.

This initiative will be done in coordination with the Ministry for Cultural Heritage and Activities.  The exhibition the crowdfunding will support is entitled Vice Versa.  The funds raised will go to:

  • Additional funding for artists’ works and productions
  • Cultural mediation and educational activities geared towards schools, universities and visitors
  • Promotional and communications activities, including a vice versa exhibition App
  • Organization of encounters with artists and opinion leaders and a concluding conference on the themes of the Italian Pavilion

The 90 day crowdfunding campaign will commence with events being scheduled in Rome, Milan, London and New York.

Biennial FoundationVice Versa is described as:

a concept introduced by Giorgio Agamben in his book Categorie italiane. Studi di Poetica (1996), in which the philosopher maintained that in order to interpret Italian culture, we must identify a “series of diametrically linked concepts” capable of describing its underlying characteristics – binomials like tragedy/comedy, architecture/vagueness and speed/lightness thus become original keys for reading the fundamental works and artists of our cultural history.
