Rebecca Vaughan and Theresa Anderson viewed these two exhibitions one right after another. The video below offers a quick, candid discussion on whether the works paired added up, and use of space.

The discussion was taped after I had encapsulated the Norwegian exhibition at the Galleria Piazza San Marco, Venezia, Beware of the Holy Whore Edward Munch, Lene Berg and the Dilemma of Emancipation

“The two artists are paired in a way to suggest that in freedom (Whether artistic expression, social or pure revolution) the experience often accumulates acts of betrayal and sexual death. “

***A special note of thanks to the Norwegian’s for the kind welcome, providing a beautifully packaged press guide to images and easy entrance.  Not every country/ exhibition is welcoming nor prepared.
