Venice Biennale at Italian Institute of Culture, Dublin

The Italian Pavilion in the World’ – 54th International Art Exhibition of the Venice Biennale
10 June – 26 August 2011

Opening: Thursday 9th June 2011, 7pm

In the context of the celebrations of the 150th anniversary of the Unity of Italy, the Italian Pavilion at the 54th International Art Exhibition of the Venice Biennale 2011 features this year a significant new development in extending for the first time beyond national boundaries to involve the entire network of Italian Institutes of Culture. Thanks to a joint initiative of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Directorate General for the Promotion of the Country System, and the Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Activities on a project of Vittorio Sgarbi, the works of Italian artists active in foreign countries will be exhibited in the 89 Institutes located around the world. Through multimedia installations the 89 exhibitions will come together within the Italian Pavilion at the Arsenal, offering unprecedented visibility to 217 artists as well as to the Italian Institutes of Culture themselves.

The exhibition at the Italian Institute of Culture in Dublin represents Ireland as one of eighty-nine satellite exhibitions featured in The Italian Pavilion in the World at the 54th International Art Exhibition of the Venice Biennale. We are very pleased and proud to be part of this project and to present: Cecilia Bullo, Vittoria Colonna, Elena Gallotta, Paolo Scalera and Mario Sughi aka Nerosunero, the Italian artists active in Ireland selected by the committee chaired by Vittorio Sgarbi.

A video on the Dublin exhibition, on show at the Italian Pavilion in Venice, will offer unprecedented visibility to Ireland and to the artists.
