Venice Biennale Collateral Events
May 24, 2013 10:27PM

The Grace of a Gesture, an artwork by Lawrence Weiner, forms the centerpiece of an exhibition organized by the Written Art Foundation and presented on the ground floor of the Palazzo Bembo near the Rialto Bridge. The titular words will appear on five of Venice’s major sources of transportation—the vaporetti—which will transport the work through the Canal Grande, the Arsenale, the Giardini and beyond. The work will be shown in ten different languages, ranging from Chinese to Japanese to Arabic to Hebrew. Included in the exhibition at Palazzo Bembo will be another four works by Weiner originally created for his exhibition “Displaced” at the New York Dia Center for the Arts in 1991.

Palazzo Bembo, San Marco 4793, (Rialto, Riva del Carbon)

June 1st – November 24th 10 am – 6 pm,  closed on Tuesdays
