“Designed to highlight the entire range of human achievements.”
Gioni starts the exhibition at the Arsenale with an interesting pair of two artists who operated for the most part out of what is considered the mainstream art production, exhibition and market. As much as it was evident yesterday at the Giardini, it is again at the Arsenale. The curator presents artists that trouble and defy our efforts at categorization right alongside artists and works that may be more knowable to some. The artists or works are not outsiders nor folk. The works hold up- and are important pieces and/or collections in their own right.
