PIZZA PAVILION takes place at ‘Al Volo’ a regular pizzeria in Venice for the duration of the Venice Biennale #56. A list of international artists were invited to create their very personal pizza-topping ideas that will be realized by the pizzeria´s bakers and served on-site. PIZZA PAVILION uses the existing infrastructure of a working local pizzeria in order to create a highly effective and still priceless Venice Biennale 'pavilion' - a platform for young international artists at a minimum to zero cost and effort. (Almost like using solar power to gain electric energy, or using the internet to spread .gif-art …) The pizzeria will continue to run as usual. Beside the pizzeria´s regular choices PIZZA PAVILION adds a special PIZZA PAVILION menu that announces the participating artist and their pizzas. PIZZA PAVILION PIZZAs are totally edible and available at regular prices. PIZZA PAVILION is turning a regular pizzeria into an art production studio and gallery, where one can witness the creation of an contemporary „artwork“ and can buy and consume it directly. It is an operation of professionals at large. Artists make art, curators curate, pizzerias make pizza! It’s an experience of choice. The pavilion of the hangry hearts. ♥
The opening event will be accompanied by Pizza Parlance a project by Julia Mintzer (Mezzo-Soprano), Charles Ogilvie, Toby Young.
An exclusive PIZZA PAVILION Mixtape will be released by/via The Pizza Suicide Club.
Grand Opening: May 7, 8pm
