"A Sense of Place" represents Chicago as one of eighty-nine satellite exhibitions featured in the Italian Pavilion in the World at the 54th International Art Exhibition of the Venice Biennale. Organized by the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs in honor of the 150th anniversary of the unification of Italy, the Italian Pavilion brings together Cultural Institutes from across the globe to promote Italian art as it has emerged internationally over the past decade. This local presentation -- represented at the Venice Biennale through film -- highlights the work of seven exceptional, Chicago-based artists who share a connection with Italy's landscape and culture as inspiration for their practice.
The artists included in the exhibition are Carl Baratta, Antonia Contro, Stefano Cossu, Marco Ferrari, Virginio Ferrari, Sung Jang, Lou Mallozzi.
The exhibition is curated by Kate Zeller.
