The Venice Biennale (La Biennale di Venezia) – currently presided over by Paolo Baratta – has for over a century been one of the most prestigious cultural institutions in the world. Ever since its foundation, it has been at the forefront in the research and promotion of new artistic trends. In Venice, it organises international events in the field of the contemporary arts that are amongst the most important of their kind in the world.
55th International Art Exhibition
The title for this year's exhibition, the 55th International Art Exhibition, was chosen by curator Massimiliano Gioni as Il Palazzo Enciclopedico or The Encyclopedic Palace. The title and theme originate from Italian American artist Marino Auriti's work Palazzo Enciclopedico. On November 16, 1955 Auriti "filed a design with the US Patent office depicting his Palazzo Enciclopedico (The Encyclopedic Palace), an imaginary museum that was meant to house all worldly knowledge, bringing together the greatest discoveries of the human race, from the wheel to the satellite. Auriti’s plan was never carried out, of course, but the dream of universal, all-embracing knowledge crops up throughout history, as one that eccentrics like Auriti share with many other artists, writers, scientists, and prophets who have tried - often in vain - to fashion an image of the world that will capture its infinite variety and richness.” La Biennale di Venezia
