At last, the list! Massimiliano Gioni reveals the residents of his Encyclopedic Palace

Still from Victor Alimpiev, My Breath, 2007

Today marks the opening of the Sharjah Biennale, but the online art world seems to be all  a twitter about other news: while hints have been dropped – less and less subtly, we might add – over the last few months, Massimiliano Gioni has finally revealed the roster for his exhibition for this year’s Venice Biennale main exhibition, “The Encyclopedic Palace.”

Among the artists performing his “conceptual gymnastics”, we are particularly delighted to see Moscovite Victor Alimpiev, Leningrad-chronicler Evgeny Kozlov and the wonderful Wade Guyton (who was featured in our FIVE exhibition in 2009),  but the whole list reflects the curator’s admirably wide-ranging (and occasionally kooky) interests; besides works from Marino Auriti (who inspired the biennale’s title), one will find Carl Andre and Ed Atkins, John Bock and Neil Beloufa, Trisha Donnelly and Geta Bratescu, Dorothea Tanning and Danh Vo, and “anonymous Tantric painting” as well as selections from anthropologist’s Hugo A. Bernatzik’s collection of cartographically-perplexing graphic works from Southeast Asia and Melanesia.

Find the whole list here.
