Yes! After months and months of speculation, prayers, and rumors, the Venice Biennale has released the artist list for its 56th edition, “All the World’s Futures,” which is being curated by Okwui Enwezor. At a quick glance, it looks like a thrillingly eclectic list, counting among its participants giants like Bruce Nauman, Adrian Piper, and Georg Baselitz, young stars like Helen Marten, Walead Beshty, and Oscar Murillo, and deceased masters like Marcel Broodthaers, Walker Evans, and Nancy Holt/Robert Smithson (the latter of whom is also listed as a solo artist). The show runs May 9 through November 22. The full list follows below. (And here’s a geographical breakdown of the list.)
