The names of artists to be included in the 55th International Art Exhibition at the Venice Biennale have been released. The show runs June 1-Nov. 24th at the Giardini and the Arsenale, as well as in various venues throughout the city.

Curated by Massimiliano Gioni, head of exhibitions at New York's New Museum, "The Encyclopedic Palace" is named after a piece by self-taught Italian-American artist Marino Auriti. The work was an architectural model for an imaginary museum that was meant to house all worldly knowledge. It now resides with the American Folk Art Museum.
