The Spanish Ministry of Foreign A airs and Cooperation, through the Directorate for Cultural and Scienti c Relations of the Spanish Agency for International Development Cooperation (AECID), is proud to once again organize Spain’s participation in the 56th International Art Exhibition La Biennale di Venezia.
The Venetian art show, which will celebrate its 56th edition this year under the title All the World’s Futures, remains one of the most important events on the international contemporary art calendar.
Spain has always played a prominent role in the history of the Biennale, where it has its own pavilion in the Venice Giardini. Since 1950, the Ministry of Foreign A airs and Cooperation has been directly responsible for coordinating our country’s exhibitions in the Spanish Pavilion, and over the years it has constantly strived to promote Spain’s rich artistic heritage and talent.
In late 2014, Martí Manen was selected by the Directorate for Cultural and Scienti c Relations to curate the Spanish Pavilion in Venice. His project, entitled Los sujetos [The Subjects], revisits and reinterprets the gure of Salvador Dalí through the eyes of three contemporary artists: Francesc Ruiz, Cabello Carceller and Pepo Salazar. Once again, this project has been made possible with the invaluable collaboration of Spain’s Public Agency for Cultural Action (AC/E).
