David Altmejd represented Canada at the 2007 Venice Biennale where he presented two monumental works there: The Index and The Giant 2.

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), 2011 (Steven Shearer), 2013 (Shary Boyle), 2015 (BGL) and 2017 (Geoffrey Farmer).
