ARTFORUM CRITICS’ PICKS: “Venice in Venice”

Venice_in_venice_front

I am posting the first of two reviews I wrote after visiting the openings at the 54th Venice Biennial.

The Venice in Venice show is the first event of Pacific Standard Time: Art in L.A. 1945–1980—a cluster of exhibitions and related cultural events scheduled to run at over sixty venues throughout Southern California starting this fall. If you are heading to Venice and do not want to wait until October to see the “finish fetish” and Light and Space artworks, this teaser exhibition will be on view through the end of July. Co-curated by Tim Nye and Jacqueline Miró.

  1. A great exhibit presented to an audience mostly unfamiliar with the work or that time period in Los Angeles.
    I spoke with curators who did not know the work although it was in the period of their studied specialities. They had focused on NYC and Europe.
    The Getty and Tim Nye & Jacqueline Miro did an admirable job is allowing the art audience to further their education and understanding.
    Mounted in a 15th c Palazzo only furthered the vibrancy of the works.

    Tim Nye, Jacqueline Miro and the Getty did an admirable job in allowing the art audience to further their education and understanding. The setting was a beautiful juxtaposition.
