Sergei Diaghilev and the “VII Esposizione Internazionale d’arte di Venezia,” 1907

Sergei Diaghilev and the “VII Esposizione Internazionale d’arte di Venezia,” 1907 Abstract Based on previously unpublished archive material, the text details the troubled organization of the Russian Hall commissioned by Sergei Diaghilev for the Venice Biennale of Fine Arts in 1907. Its focus is on the correspondence between the “Esposizione”’s Secretary General, Antonio Fradeletto, and Diaghilev, a discourse saturated by national stereotypes and mutual ignorance, which, because of mistrust and deep incompatibilities, ends up relying on a wide network of mediators, among which figure international diplomats and socialites. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Experiment Brill

Abstract

Abstract Based on previously unpublished archive material, the text details the troubled organization of the Russian Hall commissioned by Sergei Diaghilev for the Venice Biennale of Fine Arts in 1907. Its focus is on the correspondence between the “Esposizione”’s Secretary General, Antonio Fradeletto, and Diaghilev, a discourse saturated by national stereotypes and mutual ignorance, which, because of mistrust and deep incompatibilities, ends up relying on a wide network of mediators, among which figure international diplomats and socialites.
