And Hamza Walker, after more than 20 years curating shows at Chicago’s Renaissance Society, is currently director of LAXART, a nonprofit art space in Los Angeles.
The international jury will award the Golden Lion for best national participation, the Golden Lion for best participant in the international exhibition “May You Live in Interesting Times,” and the Silver Lion for a “promising young participant” in the show.
