2007 Venice Biennale, Art Radio

For the 52nd Annual International Art Exhibition known affectionately as the 2007 Venice Biennale, Art Radio WPS1.org will once again moor its Broadcast Barge—a floating and fully-equipped broadcast station and Internet hub, lushly furnished VIP lounge, and catered party headquarters—on the Venetian waterways. This was a big succes in 2005 (see photo).

Art Radio will be the exclusive source for festival news, reports on Venice culture, interviews, discussions, unmoderated gossip, music, historic audio, and special surprises.

The station will broadcast six full days, 24 hours a day from 4-10 June—on the Web and on local FM in Venice.

Live programs that air in the middle of the night in the US and other time zones will be automatically archived for on-demand listening. So you really won't miss a thing!

Art Radio WPS1.org will broadcast on 101 MHZ in Venice (signal licensed to Radio Base, www.radiobase.net, an established community news and information station in Venice), and overnight in surrounding regions on other frequencies (Venice, Treviso, and Padua from 22.30 to 06.30), in excerpts throughout the day on ControRadio Firenze.

Listeners also tune in to a parallel streamcast of the Venice programs by clicking on the Exibart.radio banner in the www.exibart.com site - Italy's main source of updates and information on the World of Art.

WPS1.org will carry all six days live from start to finish.

Special programming coordinated by Art Radio project partners Malo, Perna Foundation, and PAN | Palazzo delle Arti Napoli will compliment a wide range of programming including talk and music from Indonesia, Egypt, Jordan, Tunisia, Lebanon, Russia, Italy, Germany, South America and much more.

In full regalia of course, nom de guerillas Frida Kahlo, Kathe Kollwitz and Rose O'Neill sat down with our Jen DeNike and Peter Coffin. They didn't sink us, but there was turbulence.

Since 1985 the Guerrilla Girls have been reinventing the "F" word--feminism--and exposing sexism and racism in politics, the art world, film and the culture at large. For the exhibition in Venice, Always a Little Further, curated by Rosa Martinez, they installed six 17-foot movie-style posters, taking on the Biennale itself, the museums of Venice, and other issues large, larger and largest...
