For the 12th International Architecture Exhibition in Venice, Director and 2010 Pritzker Prize winner Kazuyo Sejima invited Hans Ulrich Obrist to realize the Now Interviews, six days of live public interviews. The Now Interviews will be on view from August 29 – November 21, 2010. From August 22 through 27, Obrist developed what he calls “a portrait of an exhibition” encouraging viewers to consider the diverse practices of all the participants in this year’s Biennale, which Sejima has united within the theme “people meet in architecture.” Located in the Arsenale designed by SANAA, the exhibition of the Now Interviews are installed on a series of monitors for the duration of the Biennale. In addition, the 2006 Serpentine Gallery 24-Hour Interview Marathon archive will be shown in its entirety. The Now Interviews are curated by Karen Marta.
In the second part of VernissageTV’s interview with Hans Ulrich Obrist, the curator and director of the Serpentine Gallery talks about the main idea of the project in Venice, the exhibition layout and new insights he took from his stay in Venice.
