Venice 2011: Mike Stubbs, FACT

Curator and radio host Julia Draganovic met with Mike Stubbs, the director of FACT (Foundation for Art and Creative Technology), during the Secret Courtyard evenings off of the Piazza San Marco in Venice. Mike offers his curatorial perspective on the 2011 Biennale. Stubbs discusses the national context within which much of this art was created, the market approach to the exhibition, as well as challenges facing the now very successful Venice Biennale institution.



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.
