From March 16th to the 19th the art world gathered in Venice for The International Biennial of Nations. This international art expo featured the work of 165 contemporary artists selected from around the world. The categories featured included painting, sculpture, graphics, video art, and ceramics. For each section, both foreign and national entries were selected to present their artwork.

This unique event offered the opportunity to encounter, compare, and purchase traditional and innovative work from around the globe. The project was designed with the aim of enhancing artistic activity and stimulating the art market.

The Biennial was held in the beautiful Misericordia Palace. The historical setting and open floor plan made for the perfect backdrop to the event’s contemporary artwork. The building is located in the center of Venice and is one of the city’s most exclusive and prestigious locations.

The presentation was curated by Francesco Saverio Russo, Salvatore Russo, and Sandro Serradifalc, with the collaboration of artistic and editorial consultants Serena Carlino, Giacomo Cangialosi, Barbara Romeo and Rino Lucia. The event was a collaboration between industry professionals and prominent cultural figures.

The artists had the opportunity to win a number of prestigious awards. Sculptor Hasna Sal was among the selected artists showcasing work at the Biennial. She presented her glass sculptures and was awarded the Prize of Dogi for her work. ” This is one of the greatest moments of my life. To be standing on the world stage and presenting with 165 selected artists from all over the globe by the Biennale of Nations, and then to win an international artist award is a profoundly rewarding experience. Francesco and Salvatore Russo did an excellent job putting this event together at the Misericordia Palace in Venice, Italy. It was a very sophisticated art exhibition and it was well received by everyone. I head back home to the United States with great memories and new inspiration from the magical city of Venice and my fellow artists from all around the world. Looking forward to presenting at more exhibitions for the Biennale.”

ABOUT THE ARTIST: 

Passionately pursuing the creation of glass artwork including glass sinks, glass wall hangings, glass lamps, glass tableware & table tops, and glass jewelry, Hasna Sal studied fine art in England and Wales with an exhibition of watercolor renderings at the Cornwall Museum in 1997. Relocating to Boston, Massachusetts, she completed a 5-year professional degree program in architecture & urban design with her thesis for the final year in glass. Hasna Sal then moved to Kansas, where she worked as an architect, taught design at the University of Kansas and embarked on her career as a glass sculpture artist in 2004. In 2010, she was accepted by Harvard University for a post-graduate degree in landscape architecture which, according to the artist, gave her a greater understanding of the natural world which she now translates into her sculptural forms. As the driving force behind Glass Concepts 360, Hasna Sal continues to use her talent and imagination to create a myriad of glass artwork that emotes beauty; whether in the form of a glass panel or the functionality of a glass sink.
