Forget the Koons and the Kanyes. Just hours before the opening of Art Basel Miami Beach, the art world got some pretty amazing gossip: Okwui Enwezor has been named the director of the 56th Venice Biennale.
About time! The current director of Munich’s Haus der Kunst was behind the groundbreaking Documenta 11 in 2002, and has steadily been pumping out powerhouse exhibitions for New York’s ICP. We can’t wait!
There’s so much more we could say, but for now, back to the fair aisles!!
