Welcome to Making Worlds Conversations

At the 53rd Venice Biennale, curated by Daniel Birnbaum and titled "Making Worlds," there will be an exciting program of conversations between artists in the Biennale and experts who will speak with them about their work. I've curated this series.

Some of these talks will also start with performances, including Yoko Ono, Tony Conrad, Miranda July, Nikhil Chopra, and Jan Hafstrom and Lotta Melin.

We'll begin on June 3 (with Mark Lewis, the artist representing Canada, with curator Benjamin Weil) and continue through the last conversation on June 7, which is Jan Hafstrom and Lotta Melin's performance followed by a conversation with me.

We're going to blog as many of these as we can to let you know what the artists talked about. We'd love your comments, as long as they're related to the conversations!
