Director of Venice Biennale Named

Kazuyo Sejima, one half of the fabulous Japanese architectural duo SANAA, has been announced as the Director of the Venice Biennale. Its good to have an architect as director again, after the previous few by academics / curators. And apparently this is the first time there has been a female director in the Biennale’s 25-year history. I only just realised that the theme for the overall event does not get announced until early next year, although most participating countries have already started working on their exhibition. I guess we just fit our concept to the main theme once we know it…come on, we’ve all done that with certain clients or competitions haven’t we??!!
