JUNE 2007

Four Country Biennale Tour
The Canada Council for the Arts is funding me to travel to four biennales in June 2007. I am invited by the Institute of International Visual Arts (INIVA) to accompany their Deputy Director, Shreela Ghosh to the Sharjah Biennial in the United Arab Emirates (www.sharjahbiennial.org) from June 1 - June 5, 2007. I then travel with INIVA Curator of Exhibitions, Cylena Simonds from June 5 to June 16 to the Venice Biennale (www.labiennale.org), Basel Art Fair (www.artbasel.com) and Documenta 12 (www.documenta12.de) in Kassel, Germany. Once every ten years the biennales converge for presentation in the same year. This is a rare opportunity for me to witness a cross section of seminal practices by international artists in a critical context.
