Top Bill

If it has been hard for the New Zealand representatives in at the Venice Biennale to get any decent press Bill Culbert has broken the damn with this impressive slideshow coverage in Blouin Artinfo who describe Culbert's show as a "must see" and the artist as "an artworld secret for too long".  Four other New Zealanders will exhibit in Venice during the Biennale including Simon Denny who is in The Encyclopedic Palace, curated by the Biennale’s artistic director, Massimiliano Gioni. Denny’s work appears to extend another piece he did for the ICA in London last year.
