Vincenzo Trione, a professor of art and new media and vice president of the faculty of arts, tourism and markets at the IULM communications university in Milan, will curate the Italian pavilion at the 56th Venice Biennale, which opens in May of next year.
More from The Art Newspaper:
Trione’s proposed exhibition “Codice Italia” (Code Italy), which the Italian culture ministry selected from a shortlist of eight, will be “an attempt to reflect on Italian identity”, he told the Italian magazine Artribune. He said 10-12 artists, including “masters of the 1970s” and young artists under 30, would be invited to present works.
Trione is 42, giving him the distinction of being the youngest person in the biennale’s history to organize the Italian pavilion.
