Fresh Talk: Jérôme Sans and Liu Xiaodong

October 15th, 2015 · Comments

French curator Jérôme Sans and Chinese artist Liu Xiaodong talk about Xiaodong's exhibition Painting as Shooting at the Fondazione Giorgio Cini in Venice, Italy. On view for three months during the 56th Venice Art Biennale, the show reveals how Xiaodong approaches his work with the eyes and the storyboard practice of a filmmaker. His daily diary entries, the photos he takes, and the people he meets come to life in his paintings—his subjects play lead roles in paintings that depict contemporary life in unsettled environments the world over.

Peruvian artist Cesar Cornejo talks about how his project for the 12th Havana Biennial expands on a concept he first realized in Puno, Peru. In Cuba, the project site is a local family's home on the hillside of Casablanca, a neighborhood near the entrance to Havana Harbor. His unique sculptural intervention evokes both the family's history and the architectural design of the Guggenheim museum in Bilbao, Spain.
