Danh Vo Will Rep Denmark at 2015 Venice Biennale
The Vietnamese-born artist, who was selected by the country’s Committee for Visual Arts Project Funding, emigrated to Denmark at age four. Among his major exhibitions are “Danh Vo, I M U U R 2” at New York’s Guggenheim Museum in 2013; his inclusion in the New Museum’s second triennial, “The Ungovernables,” in 2012; and his participation in the 2011 Singapore Biennial.
Currently, Vo’s Public Art Fund project, “We The People,” featuring nearly 50 full-scale copper sections of the Statue of Liberty, is on view at City Hall Park in Lower Manhattan and Brooklyn Bridge Park through December 5 (see artnet News video about the project). During the project’s installation, a 40-pound section of copper chain links worth $6,000 was stolen from City Hall Park (see artnet News report).
