Established in 1895, the Venice Biennale is one of the world's most important critical forums for contemporary visual art. For the 2007 Venice Biennale, three Australian artists have been selected to represent Australia. This catalogue features their work and essays by leading art commentators Juliana Engberg, Stuart Koop and Justin Paton.
Susan Norrie will present a video installation at Fondazione Levi that explores pervasive geopolitical issues of a planet in turmoil. Daniel von Sturmer will continue his 'experiments with space', through video installations and architectural interventions especially designed for the Australian Pavilion. Callum Morton is planning a large-scale, architecturally inspired installation. This is the first time Australia will be officially represented within the national pavilion and at important external sites in Venice.
