United States Pavilion, 2015 Venice Biennale
The MIT List Visual Arts Center has been selected to organize an exhibition of new work by artist, and MIT Professor Emerita Joan Jonas, a pioneering figure in performance art and video, for the U.S. Pavilion of the 56th Venice Biennale. A panel of distinguished arts professionals assembled by the US Department of State bestows this extraordinary honor. Since 1895, La Biennale di Venezia has remained as the world’s most prestigious art event. Jonas will create a new multimedia installation for the U.S. Pavilion in Venice, Italy, to be on view May 9-November 22, 2015.
