Joana Hadjithomas & Khalil Joreige at the 56th Venice Biennale
The Third Line congratulates Joana Hadjithomas & Khalil Joreige on participating in the 56th Venice Biennale. Joana and Khalil will present a daily reading of their artist book Latent Images: Diary of a Photographer, the third part of their Wonder Beirut project. In addition to its text, this book includes thirty-eight photographic plates selected from among hundreds of reels of film exposed, but until now never developed, by the Lebanese photographer Abdallah Farah between 1997 and 2006.
The 56th International Art Exhibition: All the World’s Futures, will introduce the ARENA, an active space dedicated to continuous live programming across disciplines and located within the Central Pavilion in the Giardini. Designed by award-winning Ghanaian/British architect David Adjaye, the ARENA will serve as a gathering-place of the spoken word, the art of the song, recitals, film projections, and a forum for public discussions. Carrying out the concept of “Liveness: On Epic Duration,” the Art Biennale has commissioned several new scores and artists’ performances, to be presented continuously in the ARENA.
The 56th International Art Exhibition, titled All the World’s Futures, is curated by Okwui Enwezor. It will be open to the public from May 9 - November 22, 2015 at the Giardini della Biennale and at the Arsenale. The preview will be held on May 6th, 7th and 8th.
