Scotland + Venice Pavilion – 55th Biennale di Venezia. June 1st – November 24th 2013
The Scotland + Venice partnership is delighted to announce further details of the 2013 presentation, curated and organised by The Common Guild, Glasgow. The exhibition will feature new work by Corin Sworn, Duncan Campbell and Hayley Tompkins, as a Collateral Event at the 55th International Art Exhibition – la Biennale di Venezia. Working across a range of media, from watercolour to digital video, Scotland + Venice 2013 will showcase three of the most consistently interesting artists working in Scotland today, all of whom studied at The Glasgow School of Art and have earned growing acclaim and attention in recent years.
Scotland + Venice is a partnership between Creative Scotland, British Council Scotland and the National Galleries of Scotland. 2013 will be the sixth Scotland + Venice presentation and marks the 10th anniversary for the project with the first exhibition in 2003 showing the work of Claire Barclay, Jim Lambie and Simon Starling. This presentation builds on the critical success of previous years, which have showcased artists including Turner Prize winners Simon Starling and Martin Boyce, and Scotland + Venice’s track record for presenting artists at key stages of their careers, including 2011’s presentation of Turner Prize nominee Karla Black. This year’s project will include new work by the three selected artists presented across a suite of rooms in the 15th century Palazzo Pisani (S. Marina), home to Scotland + Venice since 2009.
The three artists participating in Scotland + Venice 2013 will present solo exhibitions at The Common Guild in Glasgow during the summer of 2014.
