Martin Puryear has been chosen to represent the U.S. at next year’s Venice Biennale. It was a great honour to exhibit Puryear’s works at Parasol unit last autumn 2017 in his first London solo exhibition.
“Martin is one of the most important artists working today,” said Brooke Kamin Rapaport, the deputy director and senior curator of the Madison Square Park Conservancy, which commissioned and will curate the United States Pavilion at the Biennale. “His work confronts contemporary issues and he has by now influenced generations of artists in our country and internationally,” he told the New York Times.
