Mill artists commissioned for the Venice Biennale

PRESS ROOM, a collaborative project developed through an Islington Mill residency has been commissioned to take part in the Venice Biennale as a Special Project during the 7th Creative Time Summit. PRESS ROOM will present three breakfast briefings on the mornings of 11, 12 and 13 August 2015 at the Cymru yn Fenis / Wales in Venice collateral exhibition venue.

The Summit is the New York-based nonprofit Creative Time’s annual platform for the intersections of art and politics. This year it was staged as part of Okwui Enwezor’s curated exhibition for the 56th Venice Biennale, All The World’s Futures.

In keeping with the Summit’s theme of “The Curriculum”, PRESS ROOM have invited a number of ‘Guest Editors’ to present conceptual briefings for artists and citizen journalists to respond to throughout the three days.
