2007 Project

Venice Biennale

Partner: Venice Biennale

Canada’s association with the Venice Biennale, one of the leading contemporary art exhibitions in the world, dates back to 1952, and has launched the careers of several of Canada’s most celebrated artists. This prestigious forum remains the only international visual arts exhibition to which Canada sends official representation. PIA has supported Canadian artists at the Venice Biennale in 2007 (David Altmejd), 2009 (Mark Lewis) and 2011 (Steven Shearer).
