Athi-Patra Ruga at the 56th Venice Biennale

The Johannesburg Pavilion and WHATIFTHEWORLD are pleased to announce a performance by Athi-Patra Ruga on 5 May 2015 at the Bauer Hotel, Venice. The performance is co-hosted by the Bauer Hotel, Blain Souther and 154 Art Fair as part of the Johannesburg Art Pavilion programme.

The Johannesburg Pavilion is curated in memory of the final Johannesburg Biennale curated in 1997 by Okwui Enwezor, the current and first African, Director of the 56th Venice Biennale 2015. Initiated by a collective group of artists, writers and curators, the project encapsulates the spirit of the expansive and mythical African city of Johannesburg, both in its provocative title as a non-official ‘city pavilion’, and as a temporary intervention in the everyday urban fabric of the city of Venice.
