As official part of the next Biennale di Venezia 2013, we will organize at Palazzo Bembo “PERSONAL STRUCTURES”. The exhibition will open 1 June and run until 24 November 2013. (all days expect Tuesday, 10.00 – 18.00)

The exhibition brings together an extraordinary combination of established artists next to artists whose oeuvre is less known.  What they have in common is a dedication to the concepts Time – Space and Existence. The exhibition is curated and organized by the Global Art Affairs Foundation.  Each artist in the exhibition presents recent artworks, either site-specific, especially made for this exhibition, or coming directly from the artist’s studio. Several rooms in Palazzo Bembo are dedicated to one single artist and some rooms are presenting 2 or 3 artists. Their strong statements give each of the rooms a very specific atmosphere. The exhibition features a broad variety of artistic media, such as: videos, sculptures, paintings, photos, installations with light, wallpaper and performance.

Since the participating artists originate from diverse cultures and are of very different age, Time – Space and Existence are highlighted from unusual points of view. PERSONAL STRUCTURES therefore stimulates a more conscious relation from the spectator towards his daily surrounding and aims to increase the awareness of their own personal Existence as human beings within a specific Space and Time.

The exhibition PERSONAL STRUCTURES is part of an international art project. It was initiated in 2002 by the Dutch artist Rene Rietmeyer, who noticed that even in the most distant corners of the world, there are artists working with Time – Space and Existence, thereby expressing themselves in a very personal way. This observation led to the idea of bringing several of these artists together in publications, exhibitions and symposia.

A 350-pages exhibition catalogue, as well as a 448-pages book about the project, PERSONAL STRUCTURES, containing the thoughts of several of the exhibiting artists, will be available.
