|Art Brussels is delighted to announce that its artistic director, Katerina Gregos, will be curating the Belgian Pavilion at the next Venice Biennial (May – November 2015) . The project is entitled Personne et les autres and it was conceived by Gregos together with the Belgian artist Vincent Meessen, whose work will feature in the pavilion, together with a dozen international artists.|
The exhibition will take the history of the Belgian Pavilion and the international context of the Biennale (both derived from the colonial exhibitions and world expositions) as the points of departure. This will be Gregos' second time in Venice; in 2011 she curated the Danish Pavilion with the critically acclaimed group exhibition Speech Matters. We are also very pleased to announce the Gregos will also be curating the 5th Thessaloniki Biennial (May – September 2015), which bears the title "Between the Pessimism of the Intellect and the Optimism of the Spirit".
Since joining Art Brussels in 2012 Gregos has worked to develop a strong curatorial identity within the fair, and has contributed to raise both the profile and the quality of Art Brussels. Gregos’ artistic vision is translated on different levels in the fair: from her involvement in the selection of the galleries to the implementation of the artistic programming through platforms like #thestage, for debates, talks, and performances, #thecinema, for short films and artists’ video projects, the selection of the artist-run and not-for-profit spaces, as well as the artistic and architectural interventions in the fair.
