Barbara Pollock querying Bice Curriger - Artistic Director of the next Venice Biennale.
While you were making your selections, did you see a major trend in contemporary art?
Yes, I looked long enough to see that many artists are dealing with classical genres. They do sculptures, they do paintings. It is not this emphasis that was there in the 1960s and '70s on "anti-art" or taking your art practice out into society. It is more looking at the fundamentals of art and culture itself.
