Inter Ben Tornato! Venice Biennale date for Scotland’s contemporary arts for 2011

Every other year, countries around the world flock to Venice in June, when the world’s largest and most prestigious showcase for contemporary visual arts, La Biennale di Venezia, launches in Italy.

The Scottish Arts Council recently confirmed that Scotland would again participate in the 54th Venice Biennale in 2011, our fifth appearance at the internationally renowned exhibition.

Amanda Catto, Head of Visual Arts, Scottish Arts Council said:
“The Scotland and Venice project is vitally important in promoting Scotland as a centre of excellence for the arts and we are delighted to announce our continued support, along with a commitment from Creative Scotland 09 Ltd, to offer artists a recognised international platform for the development and presentation of their work.

The announcement was made at the opening of the Martin Boyce No Reflections exhibition at Dundee Contemporary Arts (DCA) in Dundee, which has returned to the UK following its run at the 2009 Biennale.

No Reflections, commissioned by the Scotland and Venice partnership and curated by Judith Winter and Graham Domke of DCA, received over 20,000 visitors while in Venice.

The exhibition has been freshly curated for the showing at DCA as part of the Centre’s 10th anniversary celebrations. No Reflections opens on 12 December 2009 and runs until 14 February 2010.
