Art's Biggest Stage:
Collecting the Venice Biennale, 2007-2019

Clark Art Institute

225 South St, Williamstown, Massachusetts

From national pavilions to thematic exhibitions presented in grand villas, the Venice Biennale is an expansive, cross-continental survey of contemporary art and the social issues it engages. Since 2007, the Clark's library has built an unparalleled collection of artist editions, books, posters, publicity materials, and other objects produced for this extravaganza. Art's Biggest Stage introduces the Venice Biennale by showcasing the Clark's growing archive and exploring the questions of nationhood, identity, and spectacle central to the Biennale experience. Featuring artists from six continents, the exhibition brings together clothing, pop-up books, a cowbell, perfume, a necklace, wallpaper, tote bags, and much more.
