Flint returns to Venice for the 58th International Art Exhibition of La Biennale di Venezia

Flint will be returning to Venice in 2019 for the 58th International Art Exhibition of La Biennale di Venezia, where the agency will represent the national pavilions of Singapore and New Zealand.

Creative New Zealand will offer Post Hoc, a multi-site installation by Dane Mitchell, curated by Zara Stanhope and Chris Sharp. From dead words and extinct species to ghost towns and destroyed works of art, an inventory of bygone things will be broadcast from Palazzina Canonica on the Riva dei Sette Martiri to different locations throughout the city via industrially produced tree cell towers. These camouflaged, ersatz trees are nodes in a communication network that will signal to listeners the entities that have gone before almost like the trees that the cell towers have come to replace.

The National Arts Council of Singapore have commissioned the artist Song-Ming Ang and the curator Michelle Ho to present an exhibition entitled Music for Everyone: Variations on a Theme which will be presented in the Sale d’Armi building in Venice’s Arsenale. Ang’s multi-disciplinary art practice examines the contexts in which music is produced, disseminated and consumed and his Venice installation will explore the various ways people relate to music, both individually and as a society.
