53rd International Venice Biennale: Scotland + Venice

Martin Boyce, No Reflections 2009

The 53rd Venice Biennale opens to the public in June 2009.

Scotland's presentation is a partnership between the Scottish Arts Council, the National Galleries of Scotland and the British Council Scotland.

Martin Boyce: No Reflections, curated by DCA, runs 7 June - 22 November 2009.

Since 2003 Wales, Northern Ireland, Scotland have developed separate exhibitions as a compliment to the British Pavilion, broadening the range of the country’s representation at the Biennale.

In that year, Scotland presented Zenomap, an exhibition of the work of Claire Barclay, Jim Lambie and Simon Starling, curated by Francis McKee and Kay Pallister as well as other artists associated with Scotland.

This was followed in 2005 by Selective Memory, featuring work by Alex Pollard, partnership Joanne Tatham and Tom O’Sullivan, and Cathy Wilkes, curated by Jason Bowman and Joanne Bradley.

In 2009, the work of Martin Boyce is presented in the exhibition No Reflections, curated by Dundee Contemporary Arts - Judith Winter and Graham Domke.
