The 53rd Venice Biennial Art Fair opens to the public on 7 June 2009. For six months it presents a panorama of global contemporary art in pavilions representing the artists and countries invited. Launched in 1895, the Venice biennial has a long tradition of selecting a handful of artists to receive its prestigious prizes.

Antoni TAPIES and Miquel BARCELO have much in common, besides their Spanish origins. Both artists instil their works with an unusually powerful physical presence, through the density of the pictured surface which is scored, uneven, thickened, stained or overlaid with disparate materials.While Joan MIRO encouraged Tàpies to exploit the widest possible range of materials, Barceló was fascinated by André BRETON whose idea of the fortuitous meeting (of objects and ideas) perhaps inspired his experimental quest that led him to incorporate sand and ash, ceramic and bone into his art.
