Iraq’s experimental contemporary artists have never had a chance to present their work for an Iraq Pavilion at the Biennale di Venezia; the first and last major appearance in 1976 outlined only some of their “modern” artists. The Iraq Pavilion for 2011 indeed shows the world an exciting, professionally curated selection of 6 Iraqi artists from two generations, including various artistic media (painting, performance, video, photography, sculpture/installation).

This publication, supported also by Major Patron Hussain Ali Al Hariri, is thus an homage to all participants in the 2011 Pavilion of Iraq, a pilot project that is the basis for the continuation of the Pavilion for the next edition in 2013 and the creation of a permanent platform for Iraqi contemporary art.
