Fred Wilsons U.S pavilion will deal with Renaissance Venice and the role black Africans played in what was then the most cosmopolitan and ethnically diverse city in the world. Part of Wilsons exhibition will focus on the more personal themes of sadness and regret and will include new individual works and an installation about the legend of Othello, the Moor of Venice.
