The Venice Biennale is now well underway, but the art-world notables who arrived for the opening last week were treated to Miles Greenberg’s newest performance work, Sebastian. Within the Byzantine splendor of Palazzo Malipiero, onlookers marveled at the virtuosic artist’s sinuous movements, as five custom silver arrows protruded from his body. The debut was curated by Klaus Biesenbach and Lisa Botti as an addendum to “Elective Affinities,” an exhibition that draws an artistic dialogue between modernist works from Museum Berggruen-Neue Nationalalgalerie and the historical collections of Gallerie dell’Accademia.
