Abstract: Gav by Gavin Turk is a site-specific LibraryBar presented on the occasion of the 56th Venice Biennale. Set in the building that was once the historic bakery ‘Il Forno,’ Gav is a curatorial and interactive project that will evolve within the lifetime of the 2015 Venice Biennale. The LibraryBar is located in Calle del Forno passage between the entrance of the Arsenale and the Via Garibaldi en route to the Giardini In keeping with Gavin Turk’s playful references to art history and identity, Gav is also a homage to the celebrated Parisian cafés in Montparnasse where artists, including Picasso, often exchanged artworks when they were unable to settle their bills with cash.
