Udo Kittelmann to curate the Russian Pavilion at the 55th Venice Biennale

Curator Udo Kittelmann

Fresh on the heels on Massimiliano Gioni’s unveiling of his theme “The Encyclopedic Palace,” Artguide reports that the Stella Art Foundation has announced  that the curator of the Russian Pavilion for the 55th Venice Biennale will be Udo Kittelmann, director of the Berlin’s Neue Nationalgalerie.

According to the press release, artist Vadim Zakharov chose his curator personally, but SAF’s Stella Kesaeva also welcomes Kittelmann – the first non-citizen ever to curate the Pavilion : “Udo Kittelmann is one of the most renowned curators in the art world and his appointment is an important and conscious step, reflecting our principal objective, which is to bring Russian art out of isolation and secure for it the attention that it deserves at the highest international level.”

The Zakharov-Kittelmann pairing would be the second pavilion produced by the Stella Art Foundation. The first, “Empty Zones,” featured Andrey Monastryski and Collective Actions, as curated by Boris Groys.
