Artpace Alum Graham Fagen, from Scotland to Venice
Artpace Alum Graham Fagen (International Artist-in-Residence Fall 2011) has been selected by The Scotland + Venice partnership to represent Scotland at the 56th International Art Exhibition, the 2015 Venice Biennale. Fagen will create new work for the solo exhibition, commissioned and curated by Hospitalfield Arts, Arbroath. Working with a variety of media, including video, photography, performance, and even plants, Fagen explores the forces that shape our lives. His work at Artpace, Under Heavy Manners, used imagery of teeth to explore the production and negotiation of culture. As one of the most important and vibrant events on the international arts calendar, the Venice Biennale will certainly provide Fagen with another opportunity to showcase his creativity and talent. The 2015 Venice Biennale will run from May 9 to November 22, 2015.
