Book 3. ILLUMInations; the catalogue for the 2011 Venice Biennale. Jose and I intend to visit la Biennale di Venezia in the near future so I was happy to see that the Weldon library has a good collection of the Biennale’s catalogues. In 2011 Christian Marclay’s The Clock was sh41cp0tnwpol-_sx368_bo1204203200_own. The National Gallery of Canada with The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston purchased one edition of The Clock. I was fortunate to see it at the NGC in Ottawa when the Van Gogh show was on in 2012. The Clock is truly brilliant, everyone should see it! The catalogue for 2011 shows many great pieces of art. I was particularly struck by Franz West, also seen in Extreme Abstraction, Duvier del Dago, Kristaps Gelzis, and Karla Black to name only a few. It will be so great to see art from all over Africa, the Middle East, India, the Nordic countries, the Balkans, etc. Can’t wait!
