Venice 2011: Alexandre Arrechea, Cuban Pavilion

Cuban artist Alexandre Arrechea was invited to the 2011 Venice Biennale to exhibit his work The City that Stopped Dancing, an architecturally inspired piece featuring skyscrapers built on spinning tops. Arrechea sits down with curator and correspondent Julia Draganovic in front of the Cuban Pavilion in Venice to talk about his featured work, his relationship with architecture, and how he got started in the first place.


Venice Biennale


A series of talk and musical programs assembled from our various trips to Venice for the Biennale dating back to 2005. The programs range from round table discussions to interviews to DJ sets to virtual pavilions rendered in music and sound. On two occasions (2005 and 2007) we broadcast live on Italian FM radio from a boat moored near the Giardini. In 2011 our roving reporters covered the scene while the interview booth was headquartered near Piazzo San Marco. We also partnered with artist Federico Diaz and his sculpture-building robots at the Arsenale to design a special series called Robot Radio. 2013 brought us together with LaRete Art Projects and the Venice Agendas series produced by workinprogress for interviews and discussions.
