It is impossible to say that the new age of globalization has not had its own unique affect upon contemporary art and artists. With the blurring of cultural and geographic boundaries the art biennial has exploded. As a result of globalization, contemporary art is experiencing a myriad of changes, two of the most prominent being the itinerant nature of artists, curators, and viewers of art and the decentralization of the art metropolises. Questions arise concerning how these issues should be addressed, especially within the context of international contemporary art exhibitions.
Through examining the writings of art and cultural critics, in contrast with the format of the Venice Biennale and Documenta XI, this paper seeks to clarify the issues of itinerant culture producers and the leveling of major art nodes. My final goal is to pose possible solutions to such problems, or at least to open up further discussion of the topics being raised.
