The Bronx Museum of the Arts, with support from the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs of the U.S. Department of State, will present the work of Sarah Sze at the U.S. Pavilion at La Biennale di Venezia, the 55th International Art Exhibition.
Internationally acclaimed artist Sarah Sze will transform the U.S. Pavilion at the 2013 Venice Biennale with her signature site-specific installations. Engaging architecture and space in new ways, Sze's works feature the accumulation of everyday materials to create gravity-defying sculptural environments.
A MacArthur Fellow and Louis Comfort Tiffany Award-winner, Sze has captivated viewers with her large-scale, virtuosic constructions. Her recent achievements include the "Infinite Line" exhibition at the Asia Society and her award-winning New York City High Line commission. She has created ambitious, large-scale installations for the Cartier Foundation, the Carnegie International, the 1999 Venice Biennale, and the São Paulo Biennial.
The U.S. Pavilion is presented by the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs of the U.S. Department of State, which supports official U.S. participation at selected international exhibitions. The Pavilion co-commissioners are Holly Block, Executive Director of The Bronx Museum of the Arts and Carey Lovelace, noted critic and independent curator. The Bronx Museum of the Arts is the commissioning institution.
