VENICE, Italy, June 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- American correspondent Suzy Kellems Dominik, founder and publisher of online magazine Of Wit & Will, shares an exclusive preview [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tC9Ab2b9mWM] of the latest Louis Vuitton cultural space in Venice, which features their first Venetian exhibit titled Where Should Othello Go?
The exhibit coincides with the opening of the 55th edition of the Biennale Internationale of Contemporary Art in Venice (from 1 June to 24 November 2013) and is the brainchild of Modern Art historian Adrien Goetz and exhibition curator Herve Mikaleoff. It revolves around the work of artist Pompeo Molmenti (1819-1894), which has been restored thanks to backing from Louis Vuitton.
Focusing on a key work in the history of Venetian art – The Death of Othello (1879), which depicts an emblematic character from the City of the Doges, the exhibition pays homage to Venice in an original and evocative manner with an opposing audio-visual installation by contemporary artist Tony Oursler.
"I was thrilled to interview Anne-Catherine Grimal, vice president, art & culture, Europe & Americas for Louis Vuitton. Her insight and passion for Tony Oursler's translation of this legendary classic reveals the depth and distinctiveness of Louis Vuitton's commitment to art," comments Kellems Dominik, who is currently in Venice to report on emerging trends in art and fashion.
The Venice Biennale (La Biennale di Venezia) – currently presided over by Paolo Baratta – has for over a century been one of the most prestigious cultural institutions in the world. It has been at the forefront in the research and promotion of new artistic trends.
