Searching for a new light as a means for communicating with the viewers. "La Biennale is one of the world's most important forums for the dissemination and illumination of the current developments in international art.," states Curiger of her exhibition. "The title chosen, ILLUMInations, literally draws attention to the importance of such developments in a globalized world. I am particularly interested in the eagerness of many contemporary artists to establish an intense dialogue with the viewer, and to challenge the conventions through which contemporary art is viewed."The work of Venetian Renaissance painter Tintoretto will play a prominent role in ILLUMInations. Many contemporary artists claim to be searching for the same light that animates some of Tintoretto's later works. Tintoretto's presence will thus establish an artistic, historical, and emotional relationship with the local context.
