  • excellent presentation by professor Jennifer A. Gonzalez.

    I wonder why are US artists who’ve passed away included as representatives of the Venice Biennial?
    Not that their work isn’t relevant or not deserve the opportunity to be shared with the public but it is also
    in these cases, work that has been validated by the art establishment and not challenging to the artist.
    While other countries choose artists who have to prove themselves and don’t always succeed in
    accomplishing strong installations. It is unfair in my perspective because there is no recourse or
    conversation for the artists who’ve passed on.
