“All The World ‘s Future” is the title of the 56th International Art Exhibition opened one week ago and open to the public from the 9th of May to the 22nd of November 2015. This edition, directed by Okwui Enwezor, chaired by Paolo Baratta and organized by the Biennale di Venezia which celebrates 120 years old (1895), has set as its objective of analysis the relationship between art and the artists in this crisis’ era, crossed from serious fractures and lacerations so that you can define, despite huge advances in knowledge and technology, a kind of “age of anxiety “. And that is how the curator wonders fully grasp the anxiety of our time and how to make it understandable, articulate and examine it.
To do that it definitely does not stop to look ahead, even in terms of innovation of curatorial choices that for the first time open up the sacred temple of the artisans. In fact the Venice Pavilion tells new stories, highlighting the evolution of the art of making and relates it to technology. The exhibition “Guardando avanti. L’evoluzione dell’arte del fare. 9 storie dal Veneto: digitale – non solo digitale” will embody a small cultural revolution, pushing watching the progress of technology and the spread of digital not as a synonym of standardization and uniformity, but rather as a new opportunity to develop creativity and the search for new forms. It is along these lines that the exhibition wants to promote the meeting between technology and experiential learning, investigating recent phenomena that have developed in Veneto. Turn the spotlight on the faces, on products, production processes and on the stories of some artists or craftsmen who sign the made in Italy, wants to be “the first step in a quest to which the Biennale intends to devote most of his energy”, said Baratta.
It is a turning point, the birth of a new concept: a craftsmanship that it isn’t different from art but it becomes the continuous. The Made in Italy hugs the art and so it becomes a whole on the most important international stage of art exhibition. To support the value of the Italian artifact and to spread it in exhibitions whole there have been the major cultural institutions such as the Victoria and Albert Museum in London or the New Museum in Manhattan, reflecting how the Italian know-how has a huge echo and a confirmation in the world. Finally now it is the turn of Biennale di Venezia: the hope of rediscovery and further enhancement of the Italian craft in terms of art and culture.
