Seychelles presented with proposal to participate in the Venice Art Biennale 2015

Seychelles presented with proposal to participate in the Venice Art Biennale 2015 (Forimmediaterelease.net) The Seychelles Ministry of Tourism and Culture is putting into study a proposal presented by Nitin Shroff, a Seychellois professional photographer based in Europe, to participate in the forthcoming Venice Art Biennale 2015.

Nitin Shroff, a curator at the Venice Art Biennale 2015 presented Alain St.Ange, the Minister for Tourism and Culture, and Benjamine Rose, Principal Secretary for Culture, with a proposal to bring on board a group of well-established Seychellois visual arts artists to participate in the exhibition.

According to Nitin Shroff, Seychelles` presence in Venice Art Biennale 2015 “will be an ideal exposure for Seychellois artists.”

“The Venice Art Biennale, which translates as the Olympic for artists, has the potential to position Seychelles on the world culture map of visual artists. The Venice Art Biennale is a treasure trove of renowned arts collections and will bring publicity to Seychelles,” said Nitin Shroff.

The proposal put forward by Nitin Shroff in the presence of local artist Egbert Marday is for Alain St.Ange, the Minister for Tourism and Culture, to support the project for the setting up of a Seychellois Pavilion of well-established visual arts artists at Venice Art Biennale to be held from June until November 2015.

Mr. Shroff explained that he has compiled a proposed list of Seychelles visual arts artists that will now need to be updated after feedback from the Ministry of Tourism and Culture.

Alain St.Ange, the Minister for Tourism and Culture, said his ministry is “keen to embark on such an interesting project which represents a great revolution for Seychellois visual arts artists to make themselves heard and seen.”

Minister St.Ange added that a “Seychelles pavilion at the Venice Art Biennale 2015 can only become a reality and seen as a success story for Seychellois visual arts artists if the support of the local painting community is forthcoming.”
