Ellen Altfest, Miroslaw Balka and Damián Ortega are all participating artists in this year's Venice Biennale. Each artist features in the exhibition 'The Encyclopedic Palace' curated by Massimiliano Gioni.
'With works spanning over the past century alongside several new commissions', Gioni writes in his introduction, 'and with over one hundred and fifty artists from more than thirty-seven countries, the exhibition is structured like a temporary museum that initiates an inquiry into the many ways in which images have been used to organize knowledge and shape our experience of the world.'
The 55th International Art Exhibition will take place in Venice until 24 November 2013 at the Giardini and the Arsenale.
